TAGS: AMGT ECON ETRD MZ AGOA
SUBJECT: 2005 AGOA FORUM INPUT

REF: STATE 31066

On March 14, Emboff spoke with Luis Sitoi, Advisor to the
Minister of Industry and Commerce, and delivered text of
reftel. The text of reftel was also forwarded to the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Mr. Sitoi expressed that the
GRM would be interested in participating in the AGOA Forum in
Dakar, and said that the possible forum topics mentioned in
the reftel sounded positive, but said he needed to know more
about the specific content of the forum. He added that
Mozambique would benefit most specifically from seminars and
training to learn about U.S. sanitary and phytosanitary
regulations, and means by which Mozambique could improve
their labeling and inspection systems in order to meet U.S.
standards. Post agrees with Mr. Sitoi's suggestion, and
recommends that the AGOA Forum cover U.S. import requirements
in depth.
