Mozambique: President signs law amending Defence and Security Policy
The Mozambican and Chinese governments have signed five cooperation agreements in the context of Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi’s visit to Beijing, the Mozambican Information Agency (AIM) said on Friday.
Maputo and Beijing signed the MoUs at the end of bilateral talks between Filipe Nyusi and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping.
The first agreement concerns the joint promotion of the ‘Belt and Road’ initiative, a document outlining the general guidelines of China-Africa cooperation, while the second deals with the implementation of cooperation measures announced by the Chinese president during the Third China-Africa Forum summit in Beijing in 2018.
Third is about two projects aimed at strengthening Mozambique’s productive capacity.
The fourth agreement refers to a feasibility study on the design of a national surgical centre in Maputo and the fifth is on technical cooperation in post-Idai reconstruction after the international donors’ conference in Beira in May.
“The two heads of state reaffirmed their interest in strengthening bilateral cooperation, to mutual advantage,” according to AIM.Source: Lusa
