Mozambique is an attractive investment destination, being the second recipient country in sub-Saharan Africa, as well as, a member of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) UN, WTO, CPLP, the Commonwealth, the IMF, the World Bank, and the African Development Bank.

Mozambique is an important destination country for foreign direct investment (FDI) in Southern Africa due to its abundant natural resources and access to sea, which provides a significant advantage compared to its land linked neighbours. The Mozambican Government  strongly encourages foreign direct investment and has enormous investment opportunities in sectors such as: construction (roads, railway and general infrastructure), energy (natural gas, hydropower and bio-diesel), mining (tantalum, graphite and coal), fishing (including prawns, hake and lobster), aquaculture, tourism (hotels, sports and leisure), agriculture/horticulture (plantation forestry, cashews, sesame, tea, essential oils, fresh produce and vegetables, flowers, paprika, tobacco and tropical fruits), telecommunications, business consulting and transportation.

The discovery of large natural gas reserves in the Rovuma Basin has positioned Mozambique as an exciting investment opportunity in Africa, reaching an impressive economic growth performance over the past 15 years.

Additional investment opportunities exist in infrastructure projects, agriculture, transportation, hydroelectric power generation, education and health, which are currently often financed by international donors.
