CTA and MIC Set Details for Business Environment Monitoring Council

The Ministry of Industry and Commerce (MIC) and the Confederation of Economic Associations (CTA) met this Monday, 15 April, to make the final arrangements for the 10th Business Environment Monitoring Council (CMAN), to be held on Wednesday (17) and headed by the Prime Minister.

According to the CTA press release, the CMAN is the highest management and monitoring body of the Public-Private Dialogue (PPD), whose aim is to assess the level of implementation of the follow-up matrix to the 18th Annual Private Sector Conference (CASP) and pertinent issues relating to the business environment.

The CMAN will be attended by economic ministers, national directors, CTA sectoral offices and cooperation partners. “The ministers are expected to clarify certain concerns of the private sector, such as the payment of late invoices to state suppliers, the reimbursement of Value Added Tax (VAT), the tax burden, cases relating to kidnappings, access to finance, among others,” the document details.

At the meeting, the organisation shared the itinerary with the Minister of Industry and Trade, Silvino Moreno, as well as all the details of the Business Mission to Lisbon and Porto, to be held from 22 to 24 April, with the participation of more than 80 Mozambican businesspeople, mostly from the Agro-industry, Energy, Tourism, Transport and Logistics, Finance and Construction sectors.

Silvino Moreno appreciated the way the mission is being organised, including the format of the sessions, and made some recommendations, especially the inclusion of the metal industry.

During the mission, the sessions will take place in the form of sectoral and focussed round tables, with emphasis on the areas of Oil and Gas, Agro-industry, Transport and Logistics, Financial Services and Construction.

There will also be visits to some enterprises, an exhibition of products and services and a Portugal-Mozambique business forum on the theme of “Internationalisation of Portuguese Companies in the PALOP countries – the case of Mozambique”.

“The highlight of the mission will take place on 24 April and will be addressed by the government, where some business cooperation agreements will be signed,” reads the CTA note.

The Business Mission’s partners are the Agency for the Promotion of Investments and Exports (APIEX), the Industrial Association of Portugal (AIP), the Mozambique-Portugal Chamber of Commerce (CCMP), the CPLP Business Confederation and the Agency for Investment and Foreign Trade of Portugal (AICEP).
