The Chinese government will disburse US$3 million in humanitarian aid to Mozambique as part of a new package of support measures for countries covered by the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), according to reports.

The announcement came as government officials and heads of state, including Mozambican Prime Minister Adriano Maleiane, gathered in Beijing for the third Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation.

Maleiane met with Chinese President Xi Jinping, and the two leaders committed to further developing Sino-Mozambican ties, as well as strengthening their Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) partnership.
