The president of the Assembly of the Republic of Mozambique, Verónica Macamo, leaves today on a four-day official visit to Portugal, a parliamentary source has announced.
The visit comes at the invitation of her Portuguese counterpart and aims to forge “closer ties of friendship, solidarity and cooperation” between the two countries, the statement says.
Macamo’s agenda includes a meeting with Ferro Rodrigues, president of the Portuguese parliament, on Wednesday, and the signing of the Bilateral Parliamentary Cooperation Programme by the respective secretaries-general.
On the last day of her visit, Friday 13th, Macamo will have a courtesy meeting with President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.
Macamo is accompanied by Margarida Talapa, Ivone Soares and Lutero Simango, the heads respectively of the Frelimo, Renamo and MDM parliamentary benches.
A group of businesspeople will also join the party and attend a meeting with Portuguese counterparts on Thursday titled “Building the Future: Mozambique/Portugal”.Source: Lusa
