Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi has expressed interest in cooperation in the mining industry between his country and Botswana.
Speaking at the opening of a Mozambique-Botswana Business Forum, during his state visit to Botswana, Nyusi said that Mozambique is interested in such cooperation because Botswana is recognized for mining expertise across the world.
He said the two countries need to share knowledge to take advantage of the potential throughout the entire value chain, and Botswana has enviable experience.
In addition to mining, Nyusi stressed the importance of the tripartite project between Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Botswana for a new deep water mineral port to Techobanine, south of Maputo.
A railway built from scratch will link Botswana's coal producing region of Selebi-Pikwe to Techobanine via Zimbabwe.
