MOZAMBIQUE, ETHIOPIA TO STRENGTHEN CO-OPERATION

MAPUTO, The Mozambican and Ethiopian governments have expressed their desire to step up bilateral co-operation, particularly in the economic sphere when the Deputy Prime Minister of Ethiopia, Demeneke Mekonnen, called on Mozambican Prime Minister Carlos Agostinho do Rosario here Wednesday.

Mekonnen told the media later that the two countries had already signed various economic agreements and it was now hoped that co-operation would be more fruitful in the future, and would extend to agriculture as the Ethiopian government intended to explore the possibility of establishing partnerships with Mozambique in agriculture.

I had a very fruitful meeting with the Prime Minister, and he expressed the commitment of the Mozambican government in expanding the co-operation between the two countries and governments and making it closer, he added.

He was sure that in the near future the two countries would sign further memoranda of understanding to put this co-operation into practice.

We are very interested in discussing how to put into effect the General Cooperation Agreement that was signed in 2007,” Mekonnen declared.
