MAPUTO, Mozambique- President of Mozambique, Filipe Nyusi, expressed his interest to see economic and social relations with neighbouring South Africa, now under the leadership of President Cyril Ramaphosa, to grow stronger.
“I would like to reiterate my availability to continue working closely with Your Excellency, on the reinforcement and consolidation of our friendship and cooperation, also within the framework of the Southern Africa Development Community, African Union and other international organisations, of which we are members,” the president’s message said.
President Nyusi highlighted that, both countries are united, not only by sharing borders but also with historic, economic and cultural ties, and the bilateral cooperation should be continuously deepened, by implementing all the action plans that both countries have agreed.
Nyusi went on to felicitate the new president with vows that bilateral relationship will boost South Africa and its people towards a much greater prosperity.
At present, South Africa is among the major investors in Mozambique. Most of the electric power produced in the dam of Cahora Bassa in central Tete province, is exported to South Africa.
Both countries have a cooperation platform, the bi-national commission, where the presidents of both countries meet every two years to evaluate cooperation.
