Mozambique signs agreement with South Korea

Sep 22, 2011 12:00 AM

The governments of Mozambique and South Korea signed an agreement in Maputo, under which Korea will provide $ 60 mm for projects to set up an Emergency Information Management System, and to build a photo-voltaic power station.
Korean ambassador Lew Kwang-Chul, said that the money is already available, and he hoped that implementation of the two projects could begin as from early 2012.

The first, budgeted at $ 25 mm, seeks to facilitate the communications system of the Mozambican police and of the fire brigade, and, in an initial phase, will be undertaken in Maputo and the neighbouring city of Matola,
With the second project, which will cost $ 35 mm, it is intended to extend the use of photo-voltaic energy on a mass scale. A photo-voltaic system is one that uses solar panels to convert sunlight into electricity.

Mozambique's Deputy Foreign Minister, Eduardo Koloma, who signed for the government, said that the two agreements expressed the "excellent relations of friendship and cooperation" between the two countries.
"Since the launch of the fist Africa-Korea Forum in 2006, relations between Korea and Africa countries, particularly Mozambique, have reached historic levels", he said.

Among the projects that are already financed by Korea, Koloma added, are the new central hospital in Quelimane, in the central province of Zambezia, rural electrification in the southern province of Gaza, and rehabilitation of the Cuamba-Nampula road in the north.
