The government of Seychelles on Monday expressed interest in importing Mozambique’s gas into energy production, said the Mozambican minister of foreign affairs and cooperation, José Pacheco.
“Looking at the potential that our country has in this field, we are looking at a fertile field for cooperation,” Pacheco said.
He spoke moments after the signing of three memoranda of cooperation between the delegations of the two countries in the Mozambican presidency in Maputo, considering the visit of Seychelles head of state, Danny Faure, to Mozambique.
“As soon as we begin the large-scale gas exploration a quota will be exported to Seychelles,” Pacheco said, adding that the fisheries field will also be a priority in the relationship of the two countries.
Faure’s visit to Mozambique includes his participation in a conference called “Growing Blue” on Thursday and Friday, in Maputo.
The event, which takes place every two years, is for Mozambique to join the global movement dynamited by the United Nations to promote cooperation and sharing of knowledge for the “conservation and sustainable use of oceans, seas and marine resources.”
His visit to Maputo also aims to deepen the cooperation between Mozambique and Seychelles in the fields of defence and security, transport and communications, mineral resources and energy and tourism.
Seychelles consists of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean and sustainable tourism is one of its main activities.Source: Lusa
