MOZAMBICAN TRADE MINISTER IN LUANDA FOR THREE-DAY VISIT TO ANGOLA

Mozambique’s Minister of Trade and Industry, Ernesto Max Tonela, has arrived in Luanda for a three-day working visit to Angola aiming at strengthening co-operation between the two countries.

Tonela, who was welcomed upon arrival at Luanda’s international airport Wednesday by Angolan State Secretary for Industry Kiala Gabriel, told the media that his visit to Angola was aimed at boosting investments between the two countries.

He stressed that the visit was also part of efforts to strengthen the existing good relationship between Angola and Mozambique as well as promoting the Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2015 in Luanda by the two Heads of State during the visit by President Filipe Nyusi of Mozambique.

During his stay in Angola, the Minister will visit the Industrial and Development Zone of Viana and hold meetings with several Angolan entities.

Angola and Mozambique are both members of the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries (CPLP) and the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and enjoy co-operation in the political, diplomatic, economic, trade and cultural fields.
