Representatives of chambers of commerce and official investment promotion agencies as well as businesspeople will meet in the Mozambican capital Maputo on 24-27 August for the 10th business meeting between China and the Portuguese language countries.
The event will be held at the same time as the Maputo International Fair (Facim). The programme aims to promote trade relations and other forms of partnership, besides identifying investment opportunities and providing a look at the state of economic and business development in the countries involved.
It derives from an agreement signed in 2003 by the trade ministers of China and all the Portuguese language countries (except São Tomé and Príncipe, which does not have diplomatic relations with Beijing) in the scope of Forum Macau.
The Maputo ministerial meeting is the organisation’s tenth annual gathering and will focus on the industry, commerce, tourism, banking, fisheries, construction, infrastructure and renewable and non-renewable energy sectors. (macauhub/AO/BR/CN/GW/PT/MZ/TL)
