Industry

Agriculture, forestry and fisheries contribute about 28% of Mozambique’s GDP (2010) and agriculture accounts for 62.7% of land use. The main agricultural crops include cotton, cashew nuts, sugarcane, tea, cassava (tapioca), corn, coconuts, sisal, tobacco, citrus and tropical fruits, potatoes and sunflowers. In terms of livestock beef and poultry are the most common agricultural products. A significant portion of the agricultural sector is dominated by subsistence farming. Less than 10% of the total cultivated area is utilised by commercial farmers to grow cash or export crops (2007). The largest irrigation scheme in Mozambique is located near the city of Chokwe (260km from Maputo) in the Gaza Province. The main export crops are sugar, citrus, copra, tea, cotton and sisal which go to South Africa, Portugal and Japan. The Zambezi Valley is considered to have major investment opportunities, and the government has established the Zambezi Planning Office for the purpose of promoting and coordinating development in the region.
