Mozambique and South Africa share many things, with the mining and industrial sectors being at the top of the list, as well as sports, but the relationship is so much bigger than that; both countries have enormous rocks as national heritage sites.

Mozambican Counsellor Sergio Macamu delivered an occasional speech in which he pointed to the strong ties and very good cooperation between Mozambique and the Republic of South Africa.

Counsellor Macamu reiterated that the government of Mozambique remains firmly committed to cooperating with the government of South Africa to strengthen both political and economic relations between the two nations. Both countries enjoy sound bilateral relations in many areas, especially in the fields of trade and industry, science and technology, minerals and energy, police, service exchanges, and sports.

The event was also enlivened by the uplifting melodies of traditional African music, further enriching the cultural experience for everyone in attendance.

Throughout the event, attendees had the opportunity to reflect on the advancements achieved by these two countries, deliberate on potential future challenges, and pay tribute to the enduring friendships cultivated over the years.

Event attendees also shared their feedback on the Mozambican food and music that, according to them, stole the show.

One of the visitors, Justice Manyala, said Mozambican food was similar to South African food in spices and cuisine, showing a strong connection between the two nations.
