Mozambican President, Nyusi, arrives Zambia on State Visit, to address National Assembly, grace Ndola fair


Mozambican President, Filipe Jacinto Nyusi, is set to attend the 58th Zambia International Trade Fair in Ndola, Copperbelt Province, as the Guest of Honour.

Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Mulambo Haimbe, announced that Nyusi’s visit to Zambia would take place from June 27 to June 29, 2024, at the invitation of President Hakainde Hichilema.

Haimbe, in a statement issued in Lusaka on Wednesday, said Nyusi would hold bilateral talks with Hichilema in Lusaka, focusing on matters of mutual interest between the two countries.

These discussions would include the signing of Memoranda of Understanding in areas such as tourism, development of border infrastructure, and energy.

“This visit reciprocates President Hichilema’s State Visit to Mozambique from April 4 to April 6, 2023, and his official visit to witness the launch of the modernized facilities at Nacala Port in Mozambique on October 7, 2023,” Haimbe said.

Additionally, on June 28, 2024, Nyusi is scheduled to address the National Assembly of Zambia and later tour selected manufacturing companies in Lusaka.

Haimbe emphasized that Zambia and Mozambique enjoy excellent historical bilateral relations underpinned by shared values and friendship.

“The two countries collaborate within the context of deepening and broadening cooperation in key areas of mutual interest, including the socio-economic and political spheres,” he stated.

Mozambique remains a strategic partner for Zambia within the southern African region, serving as a key transport link through the seaport of Beira and the Nacala Corridor.

“President Nyusi’s visit to Zambia would strengthen the longstanding ties between the two sister countries and unlock much-needed economic opportunities for mutual benefit,” Haimbe said.

The minister indicated that Nyusi was expected to conclude his engagements on June 29, 2024.
