Nyusi thanked the Chinese government and people for their technical support and supply of equipment in promoting the development of Mozambique’s television and information communication industries. The project will help narrow the digital gap between Mozambique’s urban and rural areas as well as disparity between Mozambique and other countries, and will play a significant part in improving local people's livelihoods and promoting public education and social development, according to him.

Wang said that China and Mozambique help and support each other in development. The smooth handover of the China-aided satellite TV project is another important example of pragmatic cooperation between the two countries. The project will help people in the vast rural areas of Mozambique enrich their cultural lives, obtain practical information and improve their vocational skills.

The "Access to satellite TV for 10,000 African villages" project is one of the important assistance measures announced by China at the Johannesburg Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation. It aims to help 10,000 villages in African countries connect with satellite TV signals, enrich local people’s cultural lives, and promote China-Africa cultural exchanges so as to bring the two peoples closer.
