Mozambique’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Mozambique, José Condunga Pacheco, met Salaheddine Mezouar, president of the General Confederation of Enterprises of Morocco (CGEM) in Casablanca on Tuesday.
The session, also attended by Laaziz Kadiri, president of the CGEM’s Commission on Economic Diplomacy, Africa and South-South, and several other Moroccan business people active in Africa, heard Mezouar call for the strengthening of cooperation between Morocco and Mozambique.
Increased cooperation could be effected through the identification of business opportunities and the establishment of adequate mechanisms for the promotion of Moroccan investments in Mozambique, Mezouar said.
Minister Pacheco presented the different sectors of the Mozambican economy that could benefit from Moroccan know-how and expertise, including social housing, agriculture, infrastructure, tourism and energy.
The Mozambican foreign minister also invited his guest to lead a delegation of business people to the U.S.-Africa Business Summit due to take place in Mozambique in June. A side event promoted by the business associations of both countries in the framework of this summit is also on the cards.Source: Pouvoirs d'Afrique
