ANSWER: Mozambique
  • The Union Cabinet has approved a long-term contract by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Mozambique for import of pulses either through the private channels or Government-to-Government (G2G) sales through State Agencies nominated by the two countries.
  • The MoU will augment domestic availability of pulses in India and thereby stabilise its prices.
  • To mitigate the shortfall in availability of pulses and supplement the existing efforts at meeting the requirements, Government has decided to enter into long term G2G arrangement with Mozambique so as to ensure assured availability of pulses.
  • The signing of this MoU with Mozambique may also lead to similar arrangements with other countries.
