As MITC we are happy to have signed this MOU with our counterparts in Mozambique. We have agreed to work together in areas like information sharing on available investment and trade opportunities in our respective countries and also supporting each other’s business delegations or investment missions as well as attending trade fairs and business seminars.’
We are also optimistic that through this agreement we will be working together in addressing some of the barriers that our exporters do face when they are sending their goods to Mozambique and that also applies to our friends in Mozambique.’
