NEW HEAD OF MOZAMBICAN BUSINESS ASSOCIATIONS PLEDGE TO WORK FOR GREATER COHESION AMONG MEMBERS

MAPUTO, The newly elected chairperson of the Confederation of Mozambican Business Associations (CTA), Agostinho Vuma, has pledged to work towards greater cohesion among CTA members and make the organization more effective in consolidating the business environment in Mozambique.

Speaking after he was sworn into office here Friday for a three-year period following his victory in the CTA elections Thursday, Vuma declared that he would carry out the promises made in his election manifesto, stressing that the CTA must stand for democracy and transparency, and must bank on building up the technical capacity of all its bodies.

I have no doubt that the CTA will manage to achieve the desired business partnership,” he Vuma, who promised to comply with some of the most ambitious promises made during the campaign, including the creation of business associations in all provinces.

Industry and Trade Minister Max Tonela challenged the new leadership of the CTA to follow up the memoranda agreed with the government aimed at eliminating all the barriers to development of the national business class. He pledged that the government remained willing to work with the CTA to improve the business environment.

I would like to be able to rely on the new leading bodies of the CTA, and together we shall work to improve the business environment in Mozambique, the Minister added.
