We saw great interest during the various panels and we hope that the opportunities will be capitalized and bear fruit in the near future.” This was underlined by the Minister of Economy and Finance of Mozambique, Ernesto Max Tonela, participating on Thursday in Milan at the Italy-Mozambique Business Forum, organized by Confindustria Assafrica & mediterraneo.
