Mozambique Accedes to the Regional Agreement on the Fight Against Human Trafficking

On Thursday (17), Mozambique signed up to a regional agreement on combating trafficking in human beings in the region, as part of the 43rd ordinary summit of the heads of state and government of the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

The document, signed by the Mozambican President, Filipe Nyusi, and the SADC secretariat, aims to combat all forms of exploitation and trafficking in human beings.

According to the Mozambican statesman, the materialisation of the decisions taken at the meeting should help speed up the development of the member countries, as well as guaranteeing the well-being of the population.

“We must focus not only on the problems of insecurity in the region, but also on issues relating to economic and social development. SADC must prioritise permanent agendas that benefit its peoples,” he said.

Organised in the city of Luanda, the two-day event (16 and 17 August) was held under the theme “Human Capital and Financing: Main Levers for Sustainable Industrialisation in the SADC Region”, the highlight of which was the passing of the organisation’s rotating presidency from the Democratic Republic of Congo to Angola.
