The Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi said Saturday morning at Maputo International Airport that the world believes in the country’s economy, which will move into a new phase and benefit its poor citizens.
“It’s increasingly visible that the world believes in Mozambique’s transition from a poor economy to a more inclusive one in which the poor people may also benefit from the new developments,” said the president speaking to the press on his arrival at the airport after attending the Commonwealth Summit in London.
During his speech at the Commonwealth Summit, Nyusi spoke about hidden debts, the progress of the dialogue with Renamo, and freedom of expression in his country.
“We dispelled doubts about debt and talked about the dialogue with Renamo. Our discussions focused on the more just, prosperous, sustainable and safer future for the country,” he said.
In his recall about the meeting in London, the president also said that the responsibility for hidden debts should be shared with creditors because they were aware of the high amount they were giving to Mozambique, a country still in the process of development.
Mozambique has been a member of the Commonwealth of Nations since 1995. It is the one of the only two members that does not have historic ties with the UK. The other one is Rwanda. Enditem
