President Rupiah Banda is today expected in Maputo, Mozambique, for a three-day state visit.

According to Zambia’s Ambassador to Mozambique Agnes Ngoma, President Banda will hold private presidential talks with his host counterpart Armando Guebuza.

“Zambia will sign at least four bilateral agreements with Mozambique in various areas aimed at strengthening existing bilateral and economic relations,” she told journalists in Maputo yesterday.

Ngoma said among the agreements to be signed are the bilateral air service, disaster management, tourism and agriculture.

And President Banda’s assistant for press and public relations, Dickson Jere, in a statement said the President will, with his Mozambican counterpart, discuss the implementation of the Nacala, Beira and Mtwara development corridors which are expected to provide trade links with Malawi, Tanzania and that country.

President Banda on Monday succeeded Guebuza as chairperson of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) organ on politics defence and security cooperation.

The President and his entourage are expected to return to Zambia on Friday.

Last week, President Banda visited Botswana where he went to officiate at the opening of the Serowe Institute of Health Sciences.

On Sunday, President Banda travelled to Congo Brazzaville to attend that country’s 50th Independence celebrations before proceeding to Namibia for the 30th Jubilee SADC summit where he will leave for Mozambique today.
