Introduction The discovery of large natural gas reserves in the Rovuma Basin has positioned Mozambique as an exciting investment opportunity in Africa. Natural resource discoveries are attracting major investment and demanding a qualified workforce, although the large majority of Mozambique’s workforce does not possess the necessary skills.
No one talks of safari without mentioning the great treks that crisscross the African continent. So popular is this cradle of mankind for its magic-ridden sunsets and vast plains teeming with wildlife, that many seem to awe away at the bush ideal, totally ignoring that the continent also takes pride in mothering some of the world’s most blissful and unpolluted islands. This year, maybe it’s time to spice up your travelogues by exploring at least one of these exotic and scenic African islands.
The Port of Maputo in Mozambique has excellent development potential. It is located along the east coast of Southern Africa, to the north of the Ports of Durban and Richards Bay.

Internet access: Vital to providing wider access to education and health awareness in rural communities in Mozambique
- Les nations africaines en lice pour émerger en tant que passerelles commerciales pour les investissements étrangers directs offrent des opportunités, mais aussi des menaces inconnues pour les entreprises
- Facteurs macroéconomiques : le faible prix du pétrole et le sentiment économique mondial seront les principaux moteurs de l’instabilité au sein du continent.
- L’incertitude politique intérieure d’un certain nombre de nations d’importance constituera un risque beaucoup plus grand pour les entreprises présentes sur le continent que l’effet de la géopolitique internationale
- Les entreprises africaines resteront vulnérables et risqueront de ne pas accorder aux risques de cybersécurité la même valeur que ceux associés à la sécurité physique ou aux menaces politiques
- Les entreprises réagiront comme des arches (orientation défensive sur les principaux marchés), des requins (ciblage des nouvelles opportunités) ou des baleines (en devenant trop importantes pour faire faillite)
- La meilleure gouvernance a amélioré le climat des affaires, mais rien ne se déroule sans accroc
L’instabilité macroéconomique alimentée par le faible prix du pétrole et le sentiment économique mondial continuera d’être le principal moteur des risques commerciaux dans toute l’Afrique de l’Ouest en 2017. L’amélioration de la gouvernance et l’intégration de certaines normes et pratiques démocratiques limiteront le potentiel de détérioration, mais des défis persisteront. Les cyberattaques progressent. Les entreprises deviendront de plus en plus vulnérables jusqu’à ce que l’impact des risques cybernétiques sur leurs activités et leur réputation soit envisagé, comme le sont les effets des risques politiques et de sécurité. Voici quelques-uns des principaux thèmes du rapport annuel prévisionnel sur les risques politiques et commerciaux « RiskMap 2017 », publié par Control Risks (www.ControlRisks.com), cabinet de conseil spécialisé dans le domaine des risques.
An IMF staff team headed by Michel Lazare visited Mozambique from December 1-12, 2016 to assess recent economic developments and discuss policies to support macroeconomic stability. As highlighted in a November 28 statement (see Press Release No.16/528), the team also initiated discussions on a new economic program that could be supported by the IMF. At the end of the visit, Mr. Lazare issued the following statement:
Africa trade sector has received good news – especially for manufacturers and traders in South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, Botswana, Swaziland and Lesotho.

What this means is that, Namibia, Mozambique, Botswana, Swaziland and Lesotho have been offered duty-free access to EU markets while South Africa is also listed to have an improved market access.
Attacks on Albinos in Mozambique are engineered by powerful cross-border network, UN Independent Expert Says
Ikponwosa Ero, UN Independent Expert on the enjoyment of human rights by persons with albinism, during her official visit to Mozambique had made observations and inputs towards strengthening the fundamental human rights of albinos as they are severely threatened and being chased by cruel people who desire their body parts for rituals and other purposes.
The combination of a challenging business environment, liquidity constraints as well as a limited number of financially credible off-takers in many jurisdictions indicates that there may be a need for right-sizing some of Africa’s planned power projects, according to Jeannot Boussougouth, Executive: Power & Infrastructure at Standard Bank.
New Representative Office in Dubai to Serve as a Gateway for Regional Investors to Africa
Africa has been an investment magnet for around a decade. Meanwhile recent trends show that the growth of the continent will slow down.
A unique transportation technology that can offer fast travel durations at competitive prices is being developed in such countries as South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and China. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) classifies the technology as a boat, except that it resembles an aircraft due to its central fuselage and presence of wings. However, commercial aircraft wings are designed to generate a powerful vacuum effect on the top side at high forward speeds, when the aircraft lifts off into the sky. The aircraft look-alike generates zero vacuum effect on the top side of the wings at any speed.
In Ressano Garcia, a new power generation plant designed to provide electrical power supply for Mozambique’s rapidly expanding economy, officially went into operation today.

The medium speed engines are of type B35:40V20AG2, supplied by Bergen Engines, a Rolls-Royce Power Systems subsidiary. This is the biggest medium speed power plant powered by Rolls-Royce.
