Government Claims “Low Scientific Knowledge Affects Industry Growth”

The Minister of Industry and Trade, Silvino Moreno, said on Monday, November 21, in Maputo, that the weak research and interaction between knowledge holders in the areas of production is weakening the industrial sector in the country.

Speaking during the 46th annual session on intellectual property, the minister said that the industrial area is constantly evolving, and that investment in scientific knowledge has shown itself as one of the key sectors for the development of the economy in several countries, including Mozambique.

 “A serious and sincere diagnosis will allow us to see that, in general, we are far short of what is desirable, as it is easy to note that the weak incorporation of scientific knowledge in the framework of industrial production is at the root of the poor performance of economies,” lamented Silvino Moreno.

According to the leader, poor research is not the only problem affecting developing countries, since the industrial sector has proved to be increasingly competitive and countries should bet on protecting the brands produced nationally.

“All economic activity is done by people, whose inspirations may not be scientific, so the various authors must be respected. That is why we want to create mechanisms so that what we produce in Africa when it goes to Europe is clear that it is from Africa,” Moreno reiterated.

The 46th ordinary session of the Administrative Council of the African Regional Intellectual Property Organization will take place from the 21st to the 25th of this month.
