Mozambique to Boost Economic Cooperation with China

The Prime Minister, Adriano Maleiane, said on Monday (15) that the country intends to continue with existing economic cooperation with China, especially in the sectors of Agriculture, Agro-Processing, Industry, Transport, Energy, Education, Culture and Tourism.

Speaking during a meeting with the vice-minister of the International Department of the Communist Party of China, Li Ming Xiang, who is visiting Mozambique, Maleiane revealed that the parties want to continue to increase the involvement of the business sector in both countries in order to boost bilateral cooperation in those areas.

“During the meeting, we talked about the state of bilateral cooperation, in which we reaffirmed our willingness and interest in increasingly strengthening the strategic partnership focused on the political, economic and social spheres for the benefit of both peoples,” he emphasised.

According to the prime minister, “the Chinese leader reiterated his country’s commitment to continuing to provide support to Mozambican, especially to face global challenges within the framework of the strategic partnership, established in 2016 by the respective Presidents Filipe Nyusi and Xi Jinping”.

Last year, following the 3rd Forum of the Belt and Road Initiative, Xi Jinping had already highlighted the “fruitful achievements” of cooperation between China and Mozambique and expressed interest in strengthening strategic coordination with Maputo.

The Chinese leader stressed the Asian country’s willingness to intensify communication with Mozambique on multilateral platforms, such as the UN, and to promote the implementation of the Global Development Initiative, the Global Security Initiative and the Global Civilisation Initiative.

“China supports Mozambique in defending its sovereignty, security and development interests, and in following a development path that corresponds to its national reality,” he said.
