POSSIBLE PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN CAPE VERDE & CHINESE MUNICIPALITY
A delegation from the Chinese municipality of Shenzen is in Cape Verde to get a better idea of the atmosphere for foreign investment, from the perspective of tourism and investment promotion agency Cabo Verde Investimentos, the country’s two Chambers of Commerce and the private sector. Cape Verde, for its part, hopes to take advantage of cooperative ties with the Chinese municipality and get to know the benefits of doing business with the city.
This morning, the delegation made a courtesy call to the Adjunct State Secretary to the Minister of the Economy, Growth and Competitiveness, and held a work session at Cabo Verde Investimentos which included the agency’s president and administrator, the director of the government’s Department of Industry and Energy and representatives of the private sector.
This afternoon, the members of the Chinese delegation will be received by Minister of the Economy, Growth and Competitiveness José Brito and by Praia mayor Felisberto Vieira, and will visit the Operational Information Society Nucleus, where they will learn about Cape Verde’s experience with electronic governance and introduce Shenzen-based technology company Huwei. “The delegation will present the policies and strategies that made Shenzen one of the most advanced cities in the world in terms of cutting-edge technology,” reads the program of the visit.
On the island of São Vicente, the delegation will hold a work meeting with port management company Enapor and will visit the city of Mindelo’s port zone. The Shenzen representatives will also visit the local industrial park and sign a protocol of cooperation and friendship with the São Vicente municipal chamber.
On Sunday, January 20, the delegation will make its way to the island of Sal, which it will visit before departing.
The delegation is made up of Shenzen vice-mayor Zhuo Qinrui, the general sub-director of the city’s Office of Foreign Relations, Xie Chengliang, and of a number of the city’s service department directors.
