Swedish budget and agricultural aid

The Swedish government has granted $169.4 million to support the Mozambican state budget in the period 2009-2012, plus $11.05 million in support of the country's national agricultural development programme (PROAGRI) until 2010. A document to that effect was signed in Maputo on 25 March between Mozambican Foreign Minister Oldemiro Baloi and Swedish Ambassador Torvald Akesson.

The loan is in line with the new memorandum of understanding signed on 18 March between Mozambique and the 19 donors and funding agencies who provide direct support to the state budget.

The support for PROAGRI is described as part of the efforts to help develop agriculture and stimulate production for domestic consumption and for export. The aid is also designed to help develop sustainability of the management and conservation of natural resources.

Baloi and Akesson also signed a document on general cooperation, following the approval in August 2008 of a new strategy for cooperation between Mozambique and Sweden. The new strategy focuses assistance on five main areas, namely democracy and governance, agriculture, energy, institutional capacity building, and natural disasters. Sweden is also prepared to continue supporting support non-governmental initiatives, particularly from universities and civil society organizations.
