This is Africa’s century; opportunities have increased significantly in the past 30 or so years. The continent has been fighting for centuries, whether fighting for survival, independence or power; it has battled to keep up with the developments of the free world, till now. In the 1500’s Africa was the most sought after asset in the real life game of risk. The game consisted of English, Spanish, French and Portuguese players, each making their mark on the continent and using their chips to defend their empires. Each player was able to successfully make their dent on the continent to benefit their home base. But all games eventually end and each empire returned to their home lands not realizing the devastation that they had left each country in.

Each African country was given back to the locals like bullies giving back a toy after they took it from them and used it till it no longer worked.  Mozambique is one country that has had a rocky start to building itself up from the start. When it gained independence in 1975 the leaders were like goats on a hay bale, each fighting for top spot and constantly pushing each other off. The country went into a civil war that lasted 15 years till peace was finally found.

African countries are about as stable as a teenager facing puberty, all aspects of business need to be handled with care, clear communication is vital for the success of any project. Mozambique has a presidential cabinet with a mind for business. This has played a vital role in the countries current growth in the coal and metals industry as the government understand the requirements to grow into a successful country. In the last three years the minerals producing sector has grown from $170 million to $470 million per year. The country has invested a lot of its resources in improving the logistics in order to make the process more efficient. The new, improved railway systems are estimated to boost the economy by 8.4% this year.

Mozambique offers investors everything they may require; cashew nuts, king prawns, cray fish, low cost safaris, brilliant business and enough coal to power the globe for 40 years.
