The Prime Minister of Mozambique, Adriano Maleiane, announced the country’s intentions to maintain economic cooperation with China, particularly in the sectors of Agriculture, Industry, Transport, Energy, Education, Culture and Tourism.

During a meeting with the vice-minister of the International Department of the Communist Party of China, Li Ming Xiang, who is visiting Mozambique, Maleiane (pictured above, left) revealed that, in order to boost bilateral cooperation in the sectors mentioned, the two sides intend to continue improving the involvement of the business sectors of both countries.

“We talked about the state of bilateral cooperation, in which we reaffirmed our will and interest in increasingly strengthening the strategic partnership centered on the political, economic and social spheres for the benefit of both peoples,” he said.

According to the prime minister, “the Chinese leader reiterated his country’s commitment in continuing to provide support to Mozambique, especially in tackling the global challenges within the context of the strategic partnership established in 2016 by the respective presidents Filipe Nyusi and Xi Jinping”.

Last year, after the 3rd Belt and Road Forum, Xi Jinping highlighted the “fruitful achievements” of cooperation between China and Mozambique, while showing interest in strengthening strategic coordination with Maputo.

The Chinese leader also stressed the Asian country’s desire to intensify communication with Mozambique on multilateral platforms, such as the UN, while at the same time promoting the implementation of the Global Development Initiative, the Global Security Initiative and the Global Civilization Initiative. “China supports Mozambique in defending its sovereignty, security and development interests, and in pursuing a development path that corresponds to its national reality,” he stated.
