The outgoing Mozambique Ambassador to Zimbabwe, His Excellency Francisco Cigarro has expressed satisfaction with the expansion of cooperation between Zimbabwe and Mozambique, with focus now on modernisation and industrialisation of the two economies.

Ambassador Cigarro paid a courtesy on Vice President General (Retired) Dr Constantino Chiwenga this Wednesday in Harare.

During his tenure in Zimbabwe, Ambassador Cigarro has overseen the growth of relations between the two countries, which culminated in the signing of two partnerships; the first by Zimbabwe Investments Development Agency (ZIDA), ZimTrade and APIEX Mozambique; and the second by the Zimbabwe National Chamber of Commerce (ZNCC), Confederation of Zimbabwe Industries (CZI) and Beira Business Association.

“Our cooperation has grown from the liberation struggle, exchange visit between our Presidents. Looking at how the private sector can also collaborate. I had the opportunity to express my government commitment to working with Zimbabwe in various areas which have been growing over the years,” he said.

Collaborations between the two countries in areas of security were also highlighted.

Said Ambassador Cigarro, “We have been speaking highly against the sanctions they have been targeting Zimbabwe illegal sanctions. we talked without forgetting the roles Zimbabwe is playing against insurgency and terrorism in the Cabo Delgado province.”

Zimbabwe and Mozambique had been collaborating in several spheres since time immemorial and will be looking to expand on that to foster economic development.

Mozambique has also grown to become Zimbabwe’s fourth largest export destination behind South Africa, United Arab Emirates and China.
