Botswana, Mozambique relations grow
25 July, 2011 MAPUTO
- Trade relations between Botswana and Mozambique are expected to increase following President Lt Gen. Seretse Khama Ian Khamas three-day state visit last week. There has been a lot of positive results and I think we are going to see more economic activities taking place between us and Mozambique in the areas of transport, petroleum imports and exports of our coal, said President Khama at the end of his visit on Saturday. He said he was optimistic that the fruits of what had been achieved during the visit will be realised in the coming months and years. Botswana and Mozambique signed 10 memoranda of understanding in different sectors. President Khama urged ministers and officials from the two countries to ensure continuous and effective implementation of the agreed issues. He further underscored Botswanas interest and commitment to the successful completion of planned regional projects such as the construction of the railway line and deep sea port that will connect our two countries to markets in the far east and beyond. President Khama also noted the importance of the undersea cable initiative (East Africa Coast Project), which will ensure ICT international connectivity. He emphasised the need for closer collaboration in the energy sector since Botswana like most of the countries in the region, faces inadequate energy supply. Other notable achievements that President Khama mentioned were the abolition of visa requirements between the two countries and the signing and ratification of an agreement on the avoidance of double taxation and prevention of fiscal evasion with respect to taxes and income. President Khama and his delegation visited Maputo Port to assess whether it had facilities that could handle coal exports from Botswana. He expressed his satisfaction with the facilities and infrastructure. He also visited Mozambique National Agricultural Research Institute and toured the Directorate of Animal Science Laboratories. The institutes head of central veterinary laboratory, Dr Sara Acha appreciated the service Botswana offered in the diagnosis of animal diseases, saying that that was one area where the two countries could cooperate, particularly with regard to control of trans- boundary animal diseases such as Foot and Mouth Disease. President Khama ended his three-day visit at Malota Port Industrial Park at the Lingamo Oceanic Terminal Petromoc where he toured the fuel storage site and terminal. He also visited an aluminium melting plant.
