The field of agriculture, trade and infrastructure was under analysis, with the parties agreeing on various cooperation projects, partnerships and incentives, highlighting pineapple, cassava, corn, wheat, soybeans and rice, according to the forum's final communiqué, cited by Angop.
In the economic field, the use of the Lobito corridor, construction of border infrastructures, manufacture of fertilizers, trade in agricultural goods, among others, also stands out.
Moving on to the field of defense and security, according to Angop, an assessment was made of the state of the border that Angola and Zambia share, having been classified as stable and controlled. However, according to the statement, cited by Angop, it was advised to continue raising awareness among citizens to respect migration guidelines, as well as the opening of more border posts.
Among other points, the meeting also addressed the social and cultural field. Here it was suggested to exchange experiences, as well as reinforce cross-border meetings to control endemic diseases and send professionals with specialties in different areas of health training, among others, writes Angop.
On that occasion, it was also agreed to hold a second cooperation meeting in Northwest Zambia, scheduled to take place between the 11th and 14th of next month.
The first Economic Cooperation and Cultural Exchange Forum took place in Luena. It should be noted that the Zambian delegation, headed by the minister of the Northwest province of Zambia, Robert Lihefu, worked in Moxico between 30 October and 2 November.
