Cooperation between Sofala province in Mozambique and China’s Anhui province, is set to increase following a memorandum of understanding signed in the city of Beira and focused on economic development, Mozambican newspaper Notícias reported.

Signed by the local governor, Félix Paulo, and by the deputy governor of Anhui, Xie Guang, the renewable memorandum is initially valid for five years and is intended to boost economic and commercial exchange as well as including staff training initiatives.
