South African companies participate in FACIM

South African companies will today participate in the 53rd edition of the Maputo International Trade Fair, commonly known as FACIM. FACIM is an international multi-sectoral trade fair held annually to showcase Mozambique as an attractive destination for trade and investment.

The 20-member business delegation is funded by the Department of Trade and Industry (dti) through its Export Marketing and Investment Assistance (EMIA) scheme with the aim of increasing exports of South African manufactured products to Mozambique.

The objective of the scheme is to develop export markets for South African products and services and to recruit new foreign direct investment into the country.

Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies says the trade fair will expose South African companies to trade and investment opportunities available in Mozambique and other countries participating in the exhibition.

Managing executive of Port Elizabeth-based Fred Footwear, Ronald Eboru, said his company is on the mission to explore opportunities in Southern Africa with the aim of exporting their products to several countries in the region.

“Our mission for going to Mozambique is two-fold. We want to gain knowledge and insight into the market in the country, and thereafter sit down and develop a strategy for converting the market knowledge into business,” said Eboru.

Meanwhile, Managing Director of Tekweni Foods, George Fletcher, said participating in the trade fair will provide his Durban based company with an opportunity to search for export opportunities in Mozambique and the neighbouring countries.

“We are optimistic that our products will attract the attention of businesspeople who will be visiting the exhibition. We are specifically targeting supermarkets, wholesalers, retailers and distribution agents so that we can negotiate long-term deals that can result in us exporting our products to Mozambique and other countries,” said Fletcher.

Meanwhile, South African High Commissioner to Mozambique, Mandisi Mpahlwa, said the participation of South African companies in FACIM could not have come at a more opportune time as the country’s economy is recovering from the challenges it experienced last year.

“The Mozambican economy is in the process of recovering from the challenges that it experienced last year. The government has not only committed to ensuring that the expected economic growth of 4.6% for 2017 is achieved, but it is also reaching out to the private sector and soliciting its active participation and support as an important partner in stimulating the country’s economic growth,” said the High Commissioner.

He added that in an attempt to woo business and gain its confidence, the Mozambican government has recently hosted two major conferences on infrastructure development and investment to engage business.

“The conferences, which outlined the country’s infrastructure development projects and identified investment opportunities in various sectors, demonstrated the government’s resolute determination to accelerate the growth of the Mozambican economy.”

Mpahlwa said it was an opportune time for South African companies to seek investment opportunities and also contribute in strengthening the economic relations and growing trade between the two countries.

The High Commissioner said the timing of the companies’ arrival was also perfect as it came hot on the heels of the Bi-National Commission (BNC) between South Africa [...]

Thousands of animals from KZN head for Mozambique

More than 2 000 animals from KwaZulu-Natal and Swaziland are on the move in a major wildlife shifting operation – to boost tourism in a depleted game reserve near the Mozambique capital, Maputo.

Over the last six years, about 1 700 animals have been moved to the Maputo Special Elephant Reserve – once home to large groups of elephant, rhino and antelope.

This year, another 2 700 animals – mostly antelope species – are being moved from Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and Swaziland game parks to the Maputo reserve, with financial support from the World Bank and the Stellenbosch-based Peace Parks Foundation.

A massive 3km-long suspension bridge from Maputo to Catembe and a 209km tar road from Maputo to Ponta do Ouro is currently under construction by the Chinese Road and Bridge Corporation at a cost of $725m.

“Maputo Special Reserve and the Ponta do Ouro marine reserve are set to become major tourist destinations thanks to the new tarred road and bridge that will cut travel time from Maputo to the reserves to just 45 minutes,” said Peace Parks Foundation chief executive Werner Myburgh.

Conservation links

Mozambican conservation agency director-general Bartolomeu Soto said the translocation would provide a significant boost to the trans-frontier conservation links between SA, Swaziland and Mozambique.

A recent survey suggests there are now more than 6 200 herbivore species in the Maputo Special Reserve. Apart bringing in giraffe, waterbuck, kudu, nyala, zebra, wildebeest and waterbuck from KZN, Swaziland and Mozambique’s Gorongosa Reserve, Myburgh said there were also plans to bring buffalo from Namibia.

“By adding another 2 300 animals this year, it will completely transform the Maputo reserve into a sought-after wildlife destination. The next step will be to start investing into more tourism accommodation and infrastructure,” the foundation said.

The scenic Maputo reserve has numerous inland lakes and large open plains, close to the specially-protected Ponta do Ouro marine reserve popular with divers.

Cape Town City sign defender Jeitoso

Cape Town – Cape Town City FC have announced their second signing of the post PSL season, with the addition of Mozambican International Captain, Jeitoso, on Monday.

The Citizens have been expected to expand their squad after securing CAF Confederation Cup football for next year’s edition.

Last week, City officially announced Ayanda Patosi as their first major signing with the 24-year-old joining from Belgium club KSC Lokeren.

“CTCFC is proud to announce the acquisition of Mozambican International Captain, Jeitoso!,” read the statement on the club’s official Facebook page.

“Jeitoso is one of the most revered central defenders on the continent, and his CAF and International experience will greatly assist the club in its push for further silverware this season.

“An elegant and explosive left-foot passer of the ball, Jeitoso has fit in very well with City and Coach Tinkler’s attractive attacking football and we are very excited to see the impact Jeitoso will have on the PSL this coming season.

“The club has been in transfer negotiations since the end of the January window and the conclusion of the purchase will now see the International Captain join his countryman Edmilson in City’s backline.”
