Businesspeople from Austria analyse business opportunities in Mozambique

17 October 2013

Austrian businesspeople plan to invest in Mozambique in sectors such as mining, processing agricultural products and rail and port facilities, the Mozambican press said as it reported on visit by a delegation of 20 businesspeople from Austria.

The Austrian businesspeople travelled to Mozambique to find ways of working with Mozambican businesspeople and took part in a meeting in Maputo with members of the Confederation of Economic Associations and representatives of the Austrian embassy in Mozambique.

This business mission is the response to a visit to Austria last February by a group of Mozambican businesspeople, headed up by the Minister for Industry and Trade.

Eva Kohl, the Austrian embassy’s development attaché, said that the sector of interest to the Austrian businesspeople were varied but gave mining as an example as well as processing agricultural products as well as construction of infrastructure such as railways, roads and ports. (macauhub)
