A UK-Mozambique Investment Forum 2010, is coming to London on 2 December. It is organized by the Government of Mozambique, with Africa Matters Limited and Developing Markets Associates. The Government of Mozambique is sending a high-level delegation, led by Hon Oldemiro Marques Baloi, (Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation), accompanied by Hon José Pacheco (Minister of Agriculture) and Hon Paulo Zuchula (Minister of Transport and Communications). Other ministries to be represented include finance, tourism, mineral resources and the Central Bank of Mozambique and other high-ranking officials and business leaders.
Mozambique has had consistently high economic growth recently. Topics include the economic outlook and investment opportunity, including inputs from the Investment Promotion Centre. Tourism, agriculture, mining and infrastructure development are all key sectors for investment and each has its own session, featuring top private sector investors and leading Government officers and ministers.
According to the promoters: “The day’s programme is designed to paint a contemporary picture of the investment climate in Mozambique and the country’s on-going efforts to attract foreign direct investment. This will be followed by further bilateral meetings, as may be required, on specific investment opportunities. The audience at the Forum will include many of the most senior institutional investors in Europe and will be one of the most significant promotions to date of Mozambique’s efforts to attract investment on the international stage.”
Top UK speakers and participants include Stephen O’Brien, Under-Secretary of State for International Development, Lord Mark Malloch Brown (Royal African Society), Lord Richard Newby (Lib-Dem Treasury spokesperson) as well as Baroness Lynda Chalker, Chairman, Africa Matters Limited. Co-organizer is the High Commission of Mozambique.
