Mozambique has great potential for cooperation with Vietnam in rice cultivation and the growing of rubber trees, cotton and cashews.

Experts from Vietnam recently attended a seminar on agricultural cooperation with Mozambique in its city of Maputo, and spoke highly of Mozambique’s potential in aquaculture, fisheries and seafood processing which are also strengths in Vietnam.

The seminar was held by the Foreign Ministry of Vietnam and relevant agencies in Mozambique as part of the implementation of high-level agreements reached during reciprocal visits by the two countries’ leaders.

The two sides agreed to facilitate the participation of their enterprises and localities in cooperation and investment in those fields.

The Vietnamese delegation to the seminar, headed by Deputy Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development Diep Kinh Tan, was briefed on the policies on investment and foreign workers, the soil conditions and the climate of Mozambique. They shared experiences in agricultural production and planning and the growing of industrial crops and trees, as well as Vietnam’s policies on human development in serving agricultural development.

On Nov. 17, the Vietnamese Embassy in Mozambique and the Mozambique Chamber of Commerce and Industry jointly held a “Vietnam-Mozambique Business Meeting” to help businesses from the two countries exchange information and seek partners./.
