26 March 2018

Mozambican Prime Minister Carlos Agostinho do Rosário said in Maputo that his country is interested in developing relations with Macau as a platform in the commercial relationship between China and Portuguese-speaking Countries, with the aim of attracting more companies interested in investing in Mozambique.

The Prime Minister was speaking during a meeting held in Maputo with a delegation from the Macau Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM) led by director Gloria Ung who was in Maputo to promote the 23rd edition of the Macau International Fair (23rd MIF) where Mozambique will be showcased as “Partner Country” of the event.

The IPIM director also met with Liu Xiaoguang, economic adviser to the Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in Mozambique, who gave assurances that the Chinese diplomatic representation maintains close contacts with the Mozambican Agency for the Promotion of Investment and Exports (APIEX) with a view to exploring trade facilitation, and expressed the hope that more Chinese companies will develop business opportunities in Mozambique.

In meetings held last week at APIEX, the Mozambican Chamber of Commerce (CCM), the Confederation of Mozambican Economic Associations (CTA) and the Institute for the Promotion of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (IPEME), Ung spoke about the incentives provided by IPIM for companies to exhibit at the MIF, which is scheduled for October of this year.
