More on inauguration of Shoprite’s US$20m shopping mall in Pemba
Agriculture, industry and mineral resources are the areas of greatest interest to the U.S. businesspeople who will meet President Filipe Nyusi today and tomorrow during his working visit to the United States.
Speaking at Maputo airport yesterday at the time of President Nyusi’s departure for Washington, Bryan Hunt, deputy head of mission at the U.S. embassy in Maputo, said business people in his country further are interested in other areas, such as fisheries and finance, but agriculture, industry and mineral resources get the most attention.
Hunt nevertheless promised that President Nyusi would meet a variety of investors with the possibility of affirming partnerships in almost all areas of interest during his visit.
The head of state and members of his delegation did not make any statement to the press at the airport, where they received the farewells of members of the central government, city and municipality, as well as of representatives of sovereign bodies.
An earlier presidency press release does however note that during his visit the president will attend the 11th US-Africa Biennial Summit and a forum between the Corporate Council for Africa and U.S. congressmen.
The document adds that the visit will consolidate and deepen relations of friendship and cooperation between the two countries and will serve to redefine strategies to strengthen political, economic and business relations.
The president will hold official talks with the U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and hold meetings with other members of the U.S. government, as well as with representatives of economic, financial and scientific institutions and other individuals.Source: Notícias
