OECD's comprehensive review of investment policy in Mozambique.  After a country overview, this report examines investment policy, investment promotion and facilitation as well as infrastructure in Mozambique.



Infrastructure investment framework in Mozambique

This chapter maps progress in developing and attracting investment in all key infrastructure sectors: telecommunications, electricity, transport, and water and sanitation. It also evaluates the policy framework for public procurement and PPPs in infrastructure projects. The government of Mozambique has integrated infrastructure investment into broader economic growth objectives under several medium and long-term planning documents, most notably the Action Plan for the Reduction of Absolute Poverty (PARPA). However, there is generally a need to strengthen inter-ministerial collaboration in the planning of public investment in infrastructure. In addition, Mozambique can, and should, embrace the new opportunities presented by an expected boom in coal mining and the development of related infrastructure. The country has exported electricity to its neighbours in the past and also played a role as a regional transportation node, but now needs to focus more on meeting domestic infrastructure needs. Some decentralised initiatives in water supply and renewable energy have made an impact but more can be done to scale and replicate them to achieve maximum effectiveness.
