Mozambique will be able to reap Zambia's vast experience in the mining sector, accumulated over several years by that neighboring country in the exploitation of natural resources.
The fact was advanced last week in Maputo, at a press conference, minutes after the end of a meeting held between the President of the Republic, Filipe Nyusi, and his Zambian counterpart, Hakainde Hichilema, during a three-day state visit to Mozambique.
During the meeting, Nyusi announced that the ministries that oversee the area of Transport and Communications in both countries are already preparing mechanisms to link the capitals of both countries, namely Maputo and Lusaka.
Flights, he added, may start soon, because the process is at a more advanced stage. According to Nyusi, there is a proposal for the construction of oil pipelines to link the two countries. Mozambique borders Zambia through the central province of Tete.
During the visit, both leaders are expected to review the situation of the two countries, Southern Africa, the African continent, and the rest of the world. This is Hichilema's first visit to Mozambique since his election in August 2021.
