China has donated USD10 million to Mozambique to support the current agricultural campaign, the Chinese ambassador to Mozambique said in Boane, near Maputo, during a visit by the chairman of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People’s Congress of China, Li Zhanshu, to the Mozambique-China Centre for Research and Transfer of Agricultural Technology.
Ambassador Su Jian highlighted agriculture and food security as priority sectors of China’s support to Mozambique and recalled that five major Chinese companies are present in the country, notably in agriculture, food security, infrastructure and access roads.
Su also said that Chinese companies have made a contribution to developing Mozambique, thereby helping the Mozambican economy to become sustainable.
The ambassador also said that the visit of the chairman of the Standing Committee of the 13th National People’s Congress of China is “of paramount importance, happening at a time when bilateral cooperation has been cemented at the highest level.”
The first deputy speaker of the Mozambican parliament, António Amélia, stressed that China has already financed training for more than 50 parliamentary officials in areas such as parliamentary management and information and communication technologies.
