I would like to invite all investors interested in taking part in the growth and development story of one of Africa’s most dynamic and innovative economies to participate in the Mozambique Investment Forum in Maputo on 18-19 October 2012.
The Forum, organised in partnership with the Commonwealth Business Council, will focus on Mozambique as ‘Africa’s Emerging Economic Power’, highlighting the opportunities available to investors from the Commonwealth and further afield in Mozambique’s diverse and rapidly growing economy.
Between 2005 and 2010, companies from 26 member countries of the Commonwealth invested in Mozambique, to the total amount of 1.2 billion US dollars. By collaborating with the Commonwealth Business Council on this important Forum we aim to significantly increase the levels of Commonwealth Investment into Mozambique.
Mozambique’s natural resources are attracting high levels of international interest and the reform of our country’s economy to make it more private sector friendly is already paying dividends. Now is the optimal time to visit Mozambique and to meet with the Ministers and officials and hear the success stories of other international private sector leaders that are already operating here.
This Forum will bring together the decision makers you need to meet to do business in Mozambique as well as focusing on key issues essential to the continued growth and development of our country.
I hope you will join us for this important Forum in the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’ and I look forward to meeting you in Maputo.
