SACU, Mozambique and UK sign EPA agreement
The Myanmar trade portal’s e-platform will be used to create a similar service in Mozambique, according to a memorandum signed on Tuesday by the governments of both countries, the Mozambican Ministry of Industry and Commerce has announced.
“The memorandum will allow Mozambique to use the Myanmar trade portal software to quickly establish one of its own,” the ministry statement reads.
The establishment of the service is provided for in the Facilitation Agreement of the World Trade Organisation, to which Mozambique is a signatory.
“The launch of the trade portal in Mozambique is planned for the month of July,” the communique adds.
The understanding was endorsed by Mozambique’s national director of External Trade, Amílcar Arone, and the Director-General for Trade in Myanmar, Minn Minn.
The delegation that travelled to the Asian country included Joaquim Macuacua, Director of Procedures at the Tax Authority and member of the National Commission for Trade Facilitation; Kekobad Patel, representative of the Confederation of Economic Associations of Mozambique (CTA); and Menon Ashok, representative of the North Cooperation Agency USAID in Mozambique.Source: Lusa
