The invitation was issued by Indian Minister of External Affairs V. K. Singh, who has been visiting Mozambique since Sunday to evaluate the level of cooperation between the two countries.

“I had the opportunity to be well received by the president of Mozambique, and we discussed many topics. Also I am here on a remarkable day, when the country’s integration to the International Solar Alliance was ratified and I conveyed the invitation to His Excellence the president to attend the summit in early March,” said the minister after meeting Mozambican President Philipe Nyusi.

Energy coverage in Mozambique continues to be low, though the country owns one of the major dams for producing electric power.

According to authorities, solar energy has an estimated coverage of around 10 percent, mostly in social and economic infrastructure such as health utilities and schools.

The ISA was set up to address energy needs and provide a platform of collaboration on tackling identified gaps through a common approach.source: Xinhua News
