Seminar discusses “internal challenges” of construction sector in Mozambique

6 September 2013

The “internal challenges” of the construction sector in Mozambique are due to be analysed at an international seminar organised by the Mozambican Federation of Contractors (FME), next week in Maputo, the FME said.

The seminar is intended to start a conversation about “the role of national resources in the current economic context,” marked by large investments in the construction sector, the federation said in a statement sent to Macauhub in Maputo.

The seminar, which will be held on 12 September, as well as by representatives of the main construction companies, will also be attended by members of the government and construction sector associations from other countries.

“The chosen theme [Building using local resources] for this seminar is intended to highlight the need to optimise the domestic climate for the construction sector, making use of all the local sector players,” said the statement.

In the first half of 2013, the Mozambican Centre for Investment Promotion (CPI) approved 20 projects in the area of Construction and Public Works, worth a total of US$82 million, which may create over 3,000 jobs. (macauhub)
