Mozambique and Angola want private involvement in economic cooperation

The governments of Mozambique and Angola defended the increase in bilateral economic relations, through greater involvement of the private sector, aiming for concrete results for the people of both countries.


"It is necessary that economic relations rise to the same level of excellence that exists in political relations", said the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Mozambique, Verónica Macamo, in Maputo, during the 10th Session of the Bilateral Commission between the Republic of Mozambique and the Republic of Angola, a country whose delegation was led by its Minister of Foreign Affairs, Téte António.

"It is necessary for the volume of business to grow exponentially, so that more Mozambicans and Angolans can benefit from the work we have been carrying out", declared the head of Mozambican diplomacy.

Verónica Macamo said that the people of Mozambique and Angola should benefit from tangible results from the excellent relations that the two governments have achieved in various areas.

She pointed to the political and diplomatic domains, defense and security, justice, constitutional and religious affairs, transport and communications, mineral resources and energy, as well as public works, water resources and housing as sectors with notable gains in bilateral cooperation.

For his part, the Minister of Foreign Affairs also defended the mobilization of the private sector in relations between the two countries, aiming to capitalize on economic potential.

"We consider that there is significant scope for improving economic relations and commercial exchanges, given the potential and opportunities that our economies offer", emphasized Téte António.

The government official announced his intention to hold a business forum in Maputo between businesspeople from both countries as a way of exploring opportunities in the economic area.

The implementation, already in force, of the visa suppression agreements between Angola and Mozambique, as well as the increase in the frequency of air connections are instruments that can be used to boost economic cooperation ties, continued the Minister of Foreign Affairs.

"We must therefore maximize and increase exchange, including the active participation of the private sector", highlighted the head of national diplomacy.

As part of strengthening bilateral relations, the two countries signed this Tuesday a cooperation agreement in the health sector, with the aim of exchanging information and experiences in this field.

They also decided to hold periodic political consultations, reiterating reciprocal support in candidacies in international organizations.

The next session of the Bilateral Commission between the Republic of Mozambique and the Republic of Angola will take place in 2026, preceded by a meeting, in 2025, to review the progress made in the cooperation memoranda that the two countries have been initialing.
