European Union Reaffirms Support for Education in Mozambique

The European Union has reiterated its commitment to the education and human development sector in Mozambique, highlighting it as a priority area for the country’s socio-economic progress, the newspaper Noticias reported.

According to the report, this position was expressed by the European Union ambassador to Mozambique, Antonino Maggiore, during the business forum between Mozambique and the European Union, held on Monday (20) in Inhambane province.

Although he did not reveal the amounts already earmarked or to be invested in this area, the ambassador emphasised the importance of the EU’s involvement in this field, saying that education is fundamental for the sustainable and balanced growth of any nation.

‘There can be no sustainable development without a solid education,’ said Antonino Maggiore.

The ambassador assured that the ‘European Union remains committed to supporting various development programmes in Mozambique, focusing on ensuring that growth is inclusive and mainly benefits small and medium-sized enterprises, which are the basis of the Mozambican economy’.

The diplomat also announced the visit of the Minister of Cooperation to Mozambique next month, whose agenda includes consolidating bilateral and trade relations with the country.

For her part, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Verónica Macamo, emphasised at the opening of the forum that ‘the Inhambane business community has an excellent opportunity to strengthen business ties with the European Union and establish new partnerships for the development of its activities’.

She pointed out that this forum is in line with the government’s economic diplomacy strategy, which aims to boost the mobilisation of resources and investments for Mozambique.

The minister also emphasised the government’s recognition of the crucial role of the private sector in the country’s economic and social development. According to Verónica Macamo, the government is continually endeavouring to find innovative initiatives to provide practical support to entrepreneurs in their various areas of activity.

In addition, the minister said that ‘the government is focused on strengthening the local entrepreneurial class, promoting the creation of jobs for young people, not only as a source of income, but also to foster future entrepreneurs’.
