      On 2 February, the Ambassador of Lithuania Rasa Jankauskaitė, residing in South Africa, presented her letters of credence to the President of Mozambique Filipe Jacinto Nyusi.

      In her speech, the Ambassador noted that Lithuania was ready to develop bilateral cooperation, trade relations and youth exchanges with Mozambique. “Lithuania is ready to share the expertise gained in reforming our country’s economy. Lithuanian business is interested in participating in developing the information and communication technology industry, expanding green energy projects, introducing modern agri-food technologies, creating high value-added products,” said Jankauskaitė.

      At the meeting with the Mozambican Minister of Finance Ernesto Max Elias Tonela, the Ambassador presented Lithuania’s business opportunities to contribute to digitising public sector services. “Lithuanian companies already have experience cooperating with African countries in developing individualised solutions that help improve the investment and business climate in the countries. Moreover, facilitating the visa regime for Lithuanian citizens would encourage inbound tourism and cultural ties,” Lithuania’s Ambassador noted.

      When presenting copies of her letters of credence to Mozambique’s Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs Manuel José Gonçalves, the Ambassador underlined that Lithuania was ready to intensify bilateral relations between the countries, increase mutual knowledge and expand cooperation. The Ambassador also noted the importance of regular bilateral political consultations and congratulated Mozambique on becoming a non-permanent United Nations Security Council member. As regards Russia’s war against Ukraine, the Ambassador called for joint efforts to defend international rules, respect the UN Charter and uphold the multilateral order, which was vital for the independence and sovereignty of states.

      At the meeting with the Mozambique Chamber of Commerce representatives, the Ambassador presented the achievements of Lithuanian business and the opportunity to exchange business missions by deepening business relations between the two countries. Representatives of Mozambique took a great interest in opportunities to cooperate in the field of university education, especially in training engineers, technologists and other highly qualified technical specialists.

      During the visit, Ambassador Jankauskaitė also met with Lithuanian soldiers serving at the European Union Training Mission in Mozambique and the mission command.
