Mozambique to open consulate-general in Macau

6 August 2014

Mozambique plans to open a consulate-general in Macau to “achieve closer business and cooperation relations”, the future head of that diplomatic mission, Rafael Custódio Marques, said on Tuesday in Macau.

The consulate will open “as soon as administrative and logistical conditions are in place” and its site determined, which may happen “within one or two months,” explained Marques, who leads the Mozambican delegation that arrived in Macau on Sunday to handle the formalities, including the search for an appropriate premises.

He added in comments to Lusa news agency that the opening of a consulate-general in Macau reflects “growing relations” between Mozambique and China, as well as “the importance” Mozambique assigns to Macau.

The consulate-general will be Macau’s third pertaining to a Portuguese language country after those of Portugal and Angola. (macauhub/MZ/MO)
