The Mozambican government wants to attract more expatriate skilled workers and ensure the growth of human capital underpinning the economic and social development of the country, and on Tuesday the Council of Ministers considered and approved a revision of regulations governing the hiring of foreign labour.
Cabinet spokesman and deputy minister of Culture and Tourism Ana Comuana said that the aim was to adapt the employment status of foreign citizens to the current context, promote the employment of foreign skilled labour where required, and properly value Mozambican labour.
In the same session, the cabinet adopted a report on child labour in Mozambique in the period 2014-2016. One of the government’s resulting findings is that child labor is to be exemplarily punished in the country.
The government also approved the transfer of responsibility for the protection of the Marine Environment and Coastal Research Centre from the Ministry of Land, Environment and Rural Development to the Ministry of the Sea and Inland Fisheries.Source: Rádio Moçambique
