The CTA President, Agostinho Vuma, was elected President of the CAL – Lusophone Chamber of Agribusiness, last Friday, 8 November, in a general assembly held in the city of Porto, Portugal.

The collaboration with the Lusophone Agrarian Chamber (CAL) arises in the context of the internationalization of the CTA, as well as the promotion of agribusiness as the number one priority of the current cast of Confederation, enshrined in its Strategic Plan 2017-2020.
Through this platform, the CTA President aims to expand the opportunities for the development of agriculture in Mozambique, as well as markets.
CAL is a nonprofit business association, which promotes the dissemination of agribusiness at the international level, with particular emphasis on the Portuguese-speaking countries, namely, Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Guinea, Mozambique, São Tomé and Príncipe and East Timor.
CAL is a platform that allows organizations and companies, to establish partnerships to promote the internationalisation, innovation and entrepreneurship.
It is an entity recognized by the Governments of the CPLP- Community of Portuguese-speaking countries.
We are increasingly strong. The Business Confederation of CPLP, indicated that CAL, is also the representative of the EC-CPLP on CONSAN in representation of the agrifood sector by the FAO – the United Nations Organization for Food and Agriculture.
It is recalled that, Agostinho Vuma had already been appointed Ambassador of the SBN platform for the expansion of healthy nutrition and engagement of the Private Sector in these practices. On a political note, at an African level, the former President of Tanzania, Jakaya Kikwete is an Ambassador of this network.
