Mozambique to woo investors digitally
12 Sep 2019 - by
The Mozambican government is set to launch a digital platform that will provide information on investment and export opportunities in the country for potential local and global investors.
Mário Gomes, national co-ordinator of the Partnership for Investment and Growth of Africa (PIGA) programme in Mozambique, said the platform would eliminate the need for potential investors to travel to Mozambique to “identify, analyse and make decisions about key investment opportunities”. It would also enable such investors to find information about programmes and procedures, rules and regulations pertaining to importing and exporting goods
“Through the platform, entrepreneurs will be able to find out about customs procedures and obtain information about programmes in force, such as the AGOA (African Growth and Opportunity Act), and start the process of exporting,” he said.
Gomes added that the platform would be available in three languages – Portuguese, English and Chinese – in the first phase.
Plans are afoot to add new languages, such as French, Arabic, Japanese, Italian and Turkish, so that it can reach more interested parties.
