President Guebuza of Mozambique is visiting Ireland this week.

This week, President Guebuza of Mozambique is visiting Ireland on an official state visit. Through Irish Aid, the government of Ireland has worked in close collaboration with the government of Mozambique to help reduce poverty and hunger and to bring about sustainable development.

The state visit highlights the important links between Ireland and Mozambique, not only through our programme of development in Mozambique, but also through the partnerships which have been forged between academic institutions, businesses, NGOs and missionaries.

The partnership between the governments aims to bring about sustainable development by improving food security at a national and household level as well as improving access to credit and improving the landscape for private sector investment.

While visiting Ireland, President Guebuza will meet with officials from third level institutions, Irish businesses and development organisations that engage with Mozambique on an ongoing basis.  President Guebuza’s visit highlights the value of Ireland and Mozambique’s bilateral relationship, and Ireland’s commitment to continue working in partnership with the South East African country.
