Minister of Planning and Development Aiuba Cuereneia said at the Vietnam Mozambique Business Forum held in Ho Chi Minh City Friday that his government would consider building at least one special economic zone for Vietnamese firms operating in the agricultural sector in his country.
Vietnamese businesses investing in Mozambique will not have to pay income tax until 2015 and get a 50 percent waiver for the next five years.
