European Union Finances Creation of National Energy Control Centre

The Ambassador of the European Union (EU) in Mozambique, Antonino Maggiore, said on Tuesday (9) that the European Union will soon finance the creation of the National Centre for Energy Control, stressing that this will be the new European strategy to promote smart, clean and safe connections in the digital, energy and transport sectors, with the perspective of strengthening the health, education and research systems worldwide.

Speaking in Maputo during Europe Day celebrations, Antonino Maggiore said that the funding will be done through the Global Gateway platform which aims to cover projects in the area of climate and energy, improving the reliability and sustainability of energy supply.

“Through the Global Gateway, the EU intends to support Mozambique in the areas of education and research, investing in digital literacy and youth skills as vectors of digital transformation. We also intend to create more job opportunities in the energy industry for young people in Cabo Delgado,” he said.

According to the source, with this approach, the EU will allow its partners to not only develop their societies and economies, but also create openness for the private sector to invest and maintain competitiveness, while ensuring the highest environmental and labour standards, as well as sound financial management.

The Global Gateway strategy is an EU initiative set up to reduce the global investment gap worldwide, and is in line with the commitment made by the leaders of the G7 (group of the world’s most industrialised countries, composed of Germany, Canada, the United States, France, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom) in June 2021 to launch an infrastructure partnership based on values and meeting high standards to meet global needs.

The Global Gateway strategy is also fully aligned, says the EU, with the United Nations Agenda 2030 and its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as well as the Paris Agreement.
