Mozambique

Opportunities in a growing economy

Emerging from a history marred by devastating civil war, Mozambique has become one of the world’s fastest growing economies.

Large oil, gas, coal and titanium discoveries in the past decade have stimulated investor appetite toward the lusophone southern African country. Projects have sprung up across Mozambique’s nascent sectors from the extractive industry to communications, transport and construction.

Risks remain present

Mozambique’s huge infrastructure deficit, political instability and vulnerability to debilitating floods and droughts remain just a few of the many hazards that investors need to consider before tapping into the country’s opportunities.

Despite strong growth rates, Mozambique remains one of the poorest countries on the African continent, with over half of the population living on less than one dollar per day.

To help protect their investments, investors need to:

  • Develop a sound understanding of the political environment
  • Carefully consider the location they operate from within the country
  • Implement robust community liaison and corporate social responsibility programmes
