During the visit, Binh met with Mozambican Prime Minister Carlos Agostinho do Rosario and FRELIMO Party General Secretary Eliseu Joaquin Machava, and held talks with Esperanca Bias, Politburo member in charge of economic affairs of the FRELIMO.

He also had meetings with Jose Condungua Pacheco, FRELIMO Politburo member and Minister of Agriculture and Food Security, and Ernesto Max Tonela, Minister of Industry and Trade.

During the meetings, the Mozambique side affirmed the importance of the relationship between the FRELIMO and the CPV, and thanked the Vietnamese party’s help in training FRELIMO’s officials and assistance in developing agriculture and telecommunications.

Binh expressed his pleasure at the expanding cooperation between Vietnam and Mozambique, manifested by the success of Movitel, the joint venture between Viettel and Mozambique’s SPI Investment Company in the telecom sector.

He suggested the two parties boost exchanges of delegations to share experience in theoretical research, State governance and national construction, thus facilitating economic and trade ties between the two countries.

Discussing cooperation potential between the two countries, the Vietnamese Party official proposed Vietnam and Mozambique can cooperate in the mining of coal and precious metal.

He also asked Mozambique to create conditions for Vietnamese enterprises to invest in producing rice, cashew, and soybean, as well as in bonded warehouses, for-export processing zones and trading centres.
