On this visit, the President of the Republic was welcomed by António Mota, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Mota-Engil Group, Manuel Mota, CEO of Mota-Engil Africa, and Aníbal Leite, Executive Director of Mota-Engil Mozambique.António Mota was very satisfied with the President’s visit and feels that it is “a recognition of the value of Portuguese engineering”. For Manuel Mota, “This is a moment of great pride for Mota-Engil and comes at a very important time for the country, because it signals the commitment of Portuguese investors in the Mozambique market”.
