Mozambique seeks India’s expertise, investment in tea plantations

Kolkata, May 2 (IANS) Mozambique Thursday sought India’s expertise as well as investment to realise full potential of tea plantations in the southeast African country.

A delegation of senior ministers, led by Mozambican High Commissioner Jose Maria Morais, held a meeting with key stakeholders of the Indian tea industry, led by M.G.V.K. Bhanu, chairman of the Tea Board here.

“We really believe that there is huge potential in Mozambique. There are around 39,000 hectares of old tea plantations in the country, out of which only 6,000 acres are under private ownership currently. We need tea expertise, we need investment,” Morais said.

Sharing of expertise and knowledge on tea cultivation could become a very good pivot of cooperation between the two countries, following which India could explore further avenues of investment in the Mozambique tea industry, he averred.

The high commissioner invited the industry stakeholders to visit Mozambique and explore opportunities to invest in the African country.
