Government Invites Omani Entrepreneurs to Invest in Mozambique

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Verónica Macamo, this Thursday, 4 July, invited businesspeople from the Sultanate of Oman to invest in Mozambique, with a view to supporting the government in creating income and jobs for young people.

According to the Agência de Informação de Moçambique, the government official issued the invitation during the audience she granted on Thursday morning (4) in Maputo to the business delegation led by the ambassador of the Sultanate of Oman to Mozambique, Ali Al Kathiri.

According to the agency’s explanation, the head of national diplomacy reiterated Mozambique’s interest in cooperating with that Middle Eastern country in areas of mutual interest, specifically fishing, marine resource management, mineral resources and energy, transport, communication and agriculture. “We are pleased that, during the visit, business portfolios on blue projects were presented,” she said.

Verónica Macamo emphasised that Mozambique has a long coastline, from Rovuma to Maputo, and “we would like to have training in the management and control of marine resources”.

Through this visit, she intends to mobilise private investment to operate in the fishing industry and thus contribute to reducing the country’s unemployment rate. “Unemployment worries us because it affects young people, the most sensitive layer who need to apply the knowledge they have learnt for the good of the country, but also to use that knowledge to support their lives,” she said.

On the occasion, Ali Al Kathiri said that the visit served to prospect areas of co-operation, in which “we were very successful and left here satisfied. There is potential for us to cooperate in various areas, so we are harmonising with the government departments to this end.”

The parties also exchanged views on mutual visa exemptions for holders of diplomatic, special and service passports. According to Ali Al Kathiri, progress has been made in this regard and it is hoped that progress will also be made for normal passports.
