Maputo, Mozambique, February 27, 2006 – Avante Mozambique, Lda, announces the launch of AVANTE MOZAMBIQUE! FESTIVAL, the country’s First Annual Cultural Tourism Festival, scheduled to take place in Maputo, August 28 – September 10, 2006. The spectacular and historical two-week long event will celebrate the nation’s peace, social harmony and international solidarity, and showcase the myriad cultural diversities of her superb tourist destinations. 

AVANTE MOZAMBIQUE! FESTIVAL has the full support of Honorary Festival Patron President Armando Emilio Guebuza, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of Education and Culture, and the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

“The mission of AVANTE MOZAMBIQUE! FESTIVAL is to celebrate, introduce and promote the rich cultural assets of Mozambique, encompassing vast, culturally diverse ethnic groupings in a multi-racial society with a legendary history of social cohesiveness, during a vibrant time in nation-building and unity.”

“We will execute AVANTE MOZAMBIQUE! on a grand scale to position Mozambique in the minds of the attendees as a country with the passion and energy to be one of the new leaders among the nations of Africa.”

“We wish to inspire the entire country by recognition of the national heritage, thereby helping to stimulate positive energies towards continued success and prosperity.  The country has emerged from most difficult times over the past several decades and is now poised for a bright future to deal courageously with the development challenges.”

“It is vital now to create positive perceptions worldwide about our country and Africa.  By promoting deeper knowledge about our culture through the tourism market sector, we begin to position ourselves in the global world as an active player.”
