The governor highlighted some benefits of this reopening, noting that this action will enable the population of both countries to be "closer, united and fraternal", stimulating trade and free movement of people and goods.

Cited by Angop, Ernesto Muangala also considered that this is an occasion that could strengthen the collaboration that already exists in the education and health sectors.

On the Zambian side, Richard Muluannda, deputy permanent secretary of Mungo province, also cited by Angop, stressed that this action generates conditions that contribute to the strengthening of collaboration between the two populations.

According to Angop, Angola and Zambia share a border of around 890 kilometres. About 311 kilometers separate the municipality of Bundas, in Moxico, from the municipality of Sicongo, in Mungo (Zambia).
