  No comments

From December 4 to 11, 2022, IAOM,IP received a delegation from the Zambian Cotton Council, which included representatives from the public and private sectors and cooperation partners, with the aim of learning about Mozambique's experience in promoting cotton.

During their stay, the Zambian delegation visited cotton ginning and oil production factories and held meetings with the main players in the cotton value chain in the provinces of Nampula and Niassa. This interaction made it possible to gather experiences on the cotton development model implemented in Mozambique, with special attention to the mechanisms for granting development areas by the state to companies, the strategies for organizing and supplying inputs to producers, extension services carried out by cotton development companies and the price-setting mechanism applied.

The exchange of experiences between the two countries resulted in the identification of potential areas of cooperation for greater integration of the cotton sub-sector in the region, with a view to finding solutions and strategic partnerships to increase the contribution of the cotton sub-sector in the region. It also highlighted the need to promote regular exchanges between the two countries with a view to sharing good practices to improve the performance of other strategically important value chains such as oilseeds.
