Deputy PM ends Mozambique visit

(VOV) - On August 1, Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai left Mozambique, concluding his official visit to the African country.

Earlier on July 31, the Deputy PM had a meeting with Speaker of the Mozambique Parliament Veronica Macamo who argued that economic and trade partnership between Mozambique and Vietnam is still far below their high cooperation potential.

Hai suggested both sides should work closely to boost the friendship and cooperation in various fields, including legislation while expressing hope that the Vietnamese Government delegation’s visit will open a new chapter in bilateral ties. 

He also briefed his host on the recent socio-economic situation in Vietnam, saying that with similarities between the two countries, Vietnam and Mozambique could support each other for mutual progress. 

The same day, Hai and his entourage visited Movitel, a joint venture between Vietnam’s Viettel Group and Mozambique’s telecommunications sector. After three years of operation, Movitel has risen as one of the three largest telecommunication firms in the African country. 

Also on July 31, the Deputy PM attended a ceremony marking the 40th anniversary of the Vietnam-Mozambique diplomatic ties. 

In his speech, Deputy Foreign Minister Vu Hong Nam and his Mozambique counterpart Nyeleti Mondlane noted that over the past four decades, the bilateral relationship has been expanded significantly. 

They expressed belief that the Deputy PM’s visit would further deepen economic, trade and investment collaboration between the two nations

During the visit, Hai had a meeting with the Vietnamese community in Mozambique, including many agricultural, education and health experts, before visiting the Matola industrial port and Mozambique’s Stema company.
