In modern history, industrialization has been the stepping stone for the economic development of most countries. With very little history of large-scale manufacture and a heavy reliance on imports, Mozambique has undoubtedly been lagging behind in terms of industrialization. This, however, is changing.
With President Nyusi now on his second term, the government has put industrialization on the top of its agenda. New Minister of Industry and Trade, Carlos Mesquita, has unveiled a strategy for industrialization that envisages a strong focus on agri-business, entrepreneurship, local and rural development, and dialogue with the private sector. The private sector, on its side, has reorganized to engage the government in a productive dialogue, presenting a comprehensive agenda of challenges and opportunities that private and public sectors need to tackle together.
Through this Roundtable, The Business Year is inviting some of the most prominent actors from the industry sector to shed light on this public-private dialogue and articulate the main priorities to develop a strong industry, from financial barriers to energy access, infrastructure, training, and so on. Through this dialogue, we want to explore possible solutions to these challenges and showcase to our audience of international investors the main opportunities Mozambique offers. Foreign investment will be a vital element of industrial development, and we hope that the outcome of this discussion can help in attracting foreign players to the market.
