Norway’s Crown Prince to visit Mozambique

Published on

Norway’s Crown Prince Haakon is expected in the Mozambican capital Maputo on Tuesday, 11 February 2020 to kick start a two-day visit at an invitation made by President Filipe Nyusi.

According to Nyusi’s office, the Norwegian prince is fulfilling an invitation extended by the President during his visit to Norway in November 2018.

“This is the first visit by a member of the Norwegian Royal family to our country and aims to strengthen the bonds of friendship and political, economic, social cooperation and will serve to evaluate the cooperation programs implemented in Mozambique, with the support of the Kingdom of Norway,” the Presidency said in a statement.

During the visit, Prince Haakon will be accompanied by members of the Norwegian Government and representatives of the business community.

Norway has been providing support to Mozambique for over 40 years in areas such as energy, good governance, blue economy, health, gender and support to the private sector.

Mozambique, which has vast offshore gas resources, has awarded gas development projects to Norway’s Yara International.
