The seminar will focus on infrastructure, trade and industry, oil and gas, agriculture and tourism. It is reported that South African businessmen are more interested in investing in the gas and oil sectors in Mozambique.

The U.S. Anadarko oil company and the Italian ENI energy are involved in the gas exploration in the northernmost province of Cabo Delgado. The government of Mozambique is encouraging local and foreign businessmen to invest in this sector.

Currently South Africa is among the largest foreign investors in Mozambique.

The talks between Nyusi and Zuma will discuss the deepening of bilateral cooperation between the two countries in various sectors, including mineral resources, tourism, education, transport and communications, energy, agriculture, fisheries, among others.

The two neighboring states are both members of the Southern African Development Community (SADC). Relations of friendship and cooperation date back at a time when the South African ruling African National Congress (ANC) as a liberation movement was fighting against the quenched Apartheid regime.

Nyusi will be accompanied by several ministers, including the Foreign Minister, Oldemiro Baloi.

It will be Nyusi’s first state visit to South Africa, since he became head of state this year, following his victory in last year’s general elections. Enditem
