The President of the Confederation of Economic Associations of Mozambique (CTA), Agostinho Vuma, was elected president of the Lusophone Agricultural Chamber last Friday, at the body’s General Assembly in Oporto, Portugal.
Vuma wants to use his new role to expand markets and opportunities for agricultural development in Mozambique, O País reports.
The chamber, which is recognised by the governments of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP), is a non-profit business association that promotes agribusiness internationally, with particular emphasis on Portuguese-speaking countries.
“The Lusophone Agricultural Chamber is a platform which allows organisations and companies to establish partnerships to promote internationalisation, innovation and entrepreneurship,” a press release sent to O Pais by the CTA reads.
Vuma is already an ambassador for the SUN business network, a platform promoting healthy nutrition and private sector engagement. The former Tanzanian president, Jakaya Kikwete, is also an ambassador for the network.
The Community of Portuguese Language Countries (Comunidade dos Países de Língua Portuguesa – CPLP) consists of the nine independent countries which use Portuguese as an official language: Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal and Sao Tome and Principe.
