Building the next generation of ports and rail in Mozambique

Infrastructure is one of Mozambique government’s four investment priorities as it unlocks economic growth and competitiveness. The World Bank forecast $9 billion in revenues from coal and gas alone by 2032, while exciting opportunities also exist in agricultural, oil, graphite and other commodities.

To efficiently manage current and future demand new ports and connecting railway infrastructure must be built while existing ports and railway infrastructure must be expanded and upgraded. Improved regional integration will provide better transport connections and encourage trade between countries. Mozambique enjoys a privileged and strategic location as the natural exit for most of its landlocked neighbors. 

Mozambique Ports and Rail Evolution is Mozambique’s only dedicated ports and rail mega event that brings the entire value chain of suppliers and buyers together thus enabling the region to reach its full potential in port and rail efficiency and increase the throughput of cargo and passengers alike.

With over USD 12bn worth of infrastructure projects being rolled out for the region, all eyes are on Mozambique, sitting on the cusp of an infrastructure boom. There is no better time than now to put the limelight on Mozambique and neighbouring countries to discuss opportunities in the sector at the upcoming Mozambique Ports & Rail Evolution, taking place in Maputo in May 2019.
