Gorongosa National Park, represented by its Warden Mateus Mutemba and the President of "Gorongosa Restoration Project" (GRP) and member of Gorongosa Oversight Committee Greg Carr, signed in Maputo on October 16th, 2014, a partnership agreement with SOICO Group represented by its Chairman of the Board Daniel David and the Administrator Enoque Massango.
This partnership agreement was signed under the newly created Gorongosa Business Club, an initiative that aims to encourage and involve the Mozambican business community in the noble effort to restore one of the most iconic parks in Africa and the world.
During the act the Warden Mutemba commented: "It is with great pleasure that we note the adhesion to the Gorongosa Business Club of SOICO Group, the main group of private communication in Mozambique, which integrates two channels of television (STV and STV News), the station SFM radio and the daily newspaper O País. "
By the SOICO Group, President David Daniel said "Gorongosa National Park is one of the main symbols of Mozambique and the success of biodiversity conservation in the Park and the development of neighboring communities is only possible with the support of the business community actuating in Mozambique and all Mozambicans. We are certain that our media can play a very important role to alert and involve civil society in the development and preservation of biodiversity, in particular, the project of the Gorongosa National Park. "
A key component of this collaboration will be the dissemination of the activities of GRP in different communication platforms of SOICO Group, namely television, print and digital newspaper and the weekly broadcast of programs relating to Gorongosa National Park on the grid of channels "STV" and "STV News".
