A total of 24 companies are representing Portugal at FACIM 2018, Mozambique’s main business fair, which runs until Sunday in Ricatla, Marracuene, near Maputo.
The 54th edition of the Agricultural, Commercial and Industrial Fair of Mozambique has as its motto: “Mozambique and the world: Broadening the market, promoting investments, promoting partnerships”.
The Portuguese companies will be showing in the Portugal Pavilion, organised by the AIP Foundation in partnership with the Portuguese Agency for Investment and Foreign Trade (AICEP) Portugal Global.
Their presence at the fair comes after a visit by Portuguese Prime Minister António Costa to Maputo in early July, when he encouraged business cooperation between Portugal and Mozambique.
Today, Portuguese Secretary of State for Internationalisation, Eurico Brilhante Dias, will represent Portugal at the Téktónica Moçambique awards ceremony promoted by the AIP Foundation.
On Tuesday morning, Dias attends the presentation session of the 2018-19 Directory of the Portugal-Mozambique Chamber of Commerce at the Portuguese Cultural Centre, and will visit the Sumol Compal plant in Boane, south of Maputo. In the afternoon he will direct the Portugal Day ceremonies at FACIM.
On the 29th, Secretary of State Dias will participate in the Forum on Agro-Food Quality and Competitiveness organised by the Association of Young Farmers of Portugal (AJAP).
Eurico Brilhante Dias will be visiting Mozambique until Saturday, and has scheduled meetings with the Minister of Industry and Commerce Ragendra de Sousa, Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources Max Tonela and with Minister of Public Works, Housing and Water Resources João Osvaldo Machatine.
Also on the agenda is a trip to Nampula to identify opportunities associated with the Nampula-Nacala railway corridor and meet Portuguese businesspeople operating in the area.
