China and Mozambique sign visa waiver agreement

Mozambique and China signed an agreement for visa-free travel, which will benefit citizens of both countries who are holders of diplomatic and service passports, according to Mozambican news agency AIM.

The agreement was signed by the Foreign Ministers of Mozambique, Oldemiro Baloi, and China, Wang Yi, Tuesday in Maputo.

At the end of the ceremony, Minister Baloi said that delegations from both countries had analysed several international issues, particularly with regard to the Southern African Development Community (SADC) as well as the reform of the UN Security Council.

Minister Wang Yi said in turn that the signing of this agreement represented the start of implementation of 10 programmes covering industrialisation, agricultural modernisation, infrastructure, finance, trade, investment, poverty reduction, welfare, health and peace and security.

These areas were defined during the Second Summit of the Africa/China Economic Cooperation Forum, held last December in Sandton, in neighbouring South Africa, during which China announced the availability of US$60 billion to strengthen economic cooperation with African countries over the next three years.
