President Yoweri Museveni said he agreed with his Mozambican counterpart, Filipe Nyusi, to renew Kampala and Maputo cooperation in wide-ranging sectors of economic development.
"We have agreed with H.E Felipe Jacinto Nyusi to renew our countries’ commitment to strengthening areas of cooperation, particularly in the fields of; Defense and Security, Immigration, Agriculture, Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Development," President Museveni tweeted Wednesday evening.
President Nyusi on Wednesday flew into Kampala with the First Lady, Dr. Isaura Ferrào, for a three-day state visit at the invitation of President Yoweri Museveni.
In 2018, President Nyusi hosted Museveni in Maputo for official talks during a three-day visit, during which a general cooperation agreement on defense, tourism, diplomacy and trade was inked.
Maputo exports to Uganda mainly sea food, cashew nuts, sugar and coal, while Kampala exports maize, beans, timber, fruits, beef, and coffee to Maputo.
Among the notable projects revealed so far is Uganda's interest in starting a wealth creation project in Mozambique and deploying troops in the country to support the campaign to flush rebel groups out of Cabo Delgado
