The Confederation of Economic Associations of Mozambique (CTA) has announced new cooperation initiatives with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in various sectors of economic activity.
The move was revealed in Maputo on Wednesday by the CTA’s Assif Osman after a meeting between the Saudi charge d’affaires Saeed Almalki and the CTA’s Board of Directors.
Osman, quoted by Notícias, said the business sector of the Saudi Arabian embassy had decided to approach the private sector to break the communications barrier and start a relationship focussed on the exchange of information.
According to Osman, the CTA had received this initiative with great appreciation, because it knew of the cooperation in hydrocarbons, where the kingdom of Saudi Arabia has wide experience .
Almalki said that his country has recently opened diplomatic facilities in Mozambique and there was a need to strengthen economic cooperation, Saudi Arabia being open to partnerships of all kinds.
He added that he hoped the meeting would mark the beginning of a long cooperation with the Mozambican private sector in many economic areas.
