Businesspeople from Aveiro visiting Mozambique announce participation in Maputo International Fair

10 July 2009

Maputo, Mozambique, 10 July – Portuguese companies from the Aveiro region will take part in the Maputo International Fair this year as well as in 2010, the managing director of the Industrial Association of the District of Aveiro (AIDA) said Thursday.

Elisabete Rita also said the visit by Aveiro businesspeople to Mozambique to discover the country’s investment potential had been “positive.” During the visit the delegation took part in a seminar entitled, “Mozambique: A Market to be Explored.”

During their stay the businesspeople met with the chairman of the Confederation of Economic Associations of Mozambique (CTA), Salimo Abdula, with officials from the Centre for Investment promotion (CPI) and with Millennium Banco Internacional de Moçambique, which is majority-owned by Portuguese bank Millennium Bcp.

AIDA; Rita said, had decided to focus on the Mozambican market as it considered that the country’s economy was experiencing rapid growth, falling inflation and support from the World Bank, and thus it is “undeniably attractive for investors,” even during crisis times.

The ten businesspeople from Aveiro who visited Mozambique are mainly from the construction sector. (macauhub)
