India and Mozambique due to be linked by air soon

15 October 2013

India may soon be linked by direct flights to Mozambique after a civil aviation contract is signed by the two countries, said Mozambique’s ambassador to India, José Maria Morais.

At an India-Mozambique business meeting organised by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry, the ambassador said that as soon as Mozambican airline Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique (LAM) decides which Indian city it wants to fly to, the agreement will be signed.

Cited by the New India Express, Morais called on Indian industrial business owners to invest in Mozambique and added that companies that export motorcycles and bicycles to Mozambique should consider investing in manufacturing them locally.

Noting that India had opened up a credit line worth US$800 million, the ambassador said that Mozambique, as well as being one of the fastest growing economies in the world had extensive resources, particularly in the mining sector, in which Indian companies already have an interest. (macauhub)
