23 October 2015

The capital of Mozambique on 29 October will host an international investor conference, an initiative of the Ministry of Transport and Communications which will focus on the development of the “Maputo Corridor.”

The ministry said in a statement that through this conference entrepreneurs can assess investment opportunities in projects in the sectors of agriculture and agro-business, including the fresh market, planting of sugarcane in Moamba and Magude and the anchor project known as Unidade Engorda (Fattening Unit) for beef processing and their derivatives.

“This theme will be followed by interventions by institutions of strategic importance, pointing out opportunities or ways in which they can support the interests of investors in these areas and their connections to the transport sector,” said the statement.

Other matters under consideration include investment opportunities in projects in the infrastructure sector and its links with the transport sector, especially the Moamba – Xhinavane toll road and the Movene dam.

“Investment opportunities in the tourism sector will also be assessed, especially the tourism and real estate projects of Macaneta and Machangulo,” the statement said.

The event will also review the economic and fiscal climate in Mozambique, the legal framework of investments, access to funding for projects in the country and the role of development partners in financing projects. (macauhub/MZ)
