Mozambique is now, more than ever, a country of huge potential and tough challenges. Despite political and economic reforms, there is still much work to be done to ensure sustainable economic development spreads across all key sectors.
Growth prospects for Mozambique remain robust, if efforts continue to address the challenges of diversifying exports, improving infrastructure links, up-skilling the workforce and fostering private-public sector relationships.
The government is seeking to strengthen collaborations with international stakeholders based on common interests -- ensuring investments not only contribute to the success of partners, but towards the development of the country. The Fourth Industrial Revolution calls for entrepreneurial, agile and innovative leaders to create the pathways needed for shared prosperity.
Following on previous successful editions, the 2019 Financial Times Mozambique Summit will bring together key ministers, policy makers along with local and international business leaders to debate the reforms and solutions that will facilitate growth, transform challenges into opportunities, and diversify the country’s economy.
