Mozambique is now entering an era of pivotal opportunity and fresh challenges. After 20 years of political turbulence, there is a pressing need to manage major economic reform, improve financial transparency and find ways to explore the diversification of natural resources and exports. The discovery of one of the most important international natural gas fields in the last 10 years offers the potential of significant long-term benefit to Mozambique. However, sluggish global LNG demand and lower oil prices have delayed the project and much rests on its fruition.
Mozambique is a dynamic, vibrant and challenging environment for international companies to do business and has a turbulent and poor economy. As the state moves forward, how should investors navigate their way through towards successful collaboration and strong regional partnerships? Which markets present the most risk and where are the best sectors and conditions for successful joint development?
Mozambique's ambitious new Government joins us for the FT Mozambique Summit together with local and international corporate leaders. The Financial Times is delighted to be hosting this exclusive summit which gathers the country's political and business leaders to debate a viable programme for accelerating the return to stronger growth and less risk. The programme will address the immediate and future challenges for Mozambique, gathering views and a bold vision that takes account of key topics from energy, infrastructure, agriculture and state vs private ownership.
