Nuysi: “Mozambique and Zambia Plan to Build Dry Ports”

In the next few days, Mozambique, Zambia and Malawi could build dry ports, a space for storing and handling cargo far from the sea coast. The information was announced this Saturday by the Mozambican President, Filipe Nyusi, during his three-day visit to Zambia.

Filipe Nyusi dedicated the three days of his visit to Zambia to strengthening bilateral relations, with an emphasis on the areas of business and national security.
In terms of business, Mozambique decided to join Zambia and Malawi in boosting cargo transport through dry ports to be built on national territory.

“We’re going to sign some agreements that are being prepared, to define who owns each space, what the conditions are, and also to stimulate traffic. So that’s what we’re trying to do, not only with Zambia, but also with Malawi,” said the Mozambican President.

Increasing the supply of electricity and establishing single borders between the two states also dominated the visit.

“We decided to work together to increase generation through the existing Mphanda Nkuwa power station projection, they are interested in understanding what it is, and what participation it has to have, which is good for us.”

In the fight against terrorism, Nyusi says he has sensed some intention on the part of the Zambians to continue supporting the country financially.

“The SAMIM mission can be seen as a mission in which the forces of countries like South Africa, Botswana, Lesotho and Tanzania were involved, but all the SADC countries contributed money, because in order to keep the forces here, we needed food, clothing, ammunition and fuel, and Zambia has never been lacking in this respect.”

Regarding the kidnappings that have been plaguing the country for more than 10 years, the newspaper Opais asked the Head of State if there was any possibility of regional co-operation to combat them, to which he replied.

“What we can do is co-operate with each other in order to clarify the cases of kidnapping, and there is no history now, at least a secure and firm one, that there is a link between kidnappings in Mozambique and Zambia, so that was not part of the vocabulary of our debates.”

In Zambia, Nyusi took part in various economic and political forums and the extraordinary meeting of the National Assembly, as well as meeting more than three thousand Mozambicans living in that country.
