Global Gateway Mozambique-EU

The first edition of Global Gateway Mozambique-EU will be held on November 22nd and 23rd, under the slogan "Creating business opportunities".


This event will explore ways of attracting quality investment under the Global Gateway initiative, as well as boosting and diversifying trade between Mozambique and the European Union. This event will be an opportunity for public and private sector stakeholders to assess the numerous investment opportunities that Mozambique has to offer.


The implementation of reforms follows the significant potential of Mozambique's natural resources (energy, mining, arable land, wildlife reserves, forestry and fishing) and its access to the territorial sea, which offers important advantages in the fields of transport and logistics. The forum will also focus on the added value of "Made in Mozambique" products and industrialisation.
