Find Industry and Manufacturing expertise in Mozambique
The manufacturing industry contributes about 16% to Mozambique’s GDP (2007). The main manufacturing products include wheat flour, food, beverages, chemicals (fertiliser, soap and paints), aluminum, petroleum products, textiles, cement, glass, asbestos and tobacco. The importance of agriculture is reflected in the manufacturing industry in relation to the food and beverage industry, with the most important product in terms of commercial value being beer. In an African context, Mozambique competes strongly in the wood and furniture sector. The textile, aluminium, iron, steel, coal, gas and agro-industry have been highlighted by Mozambique’s Investment Promotion Centre (CPI) as noteworthy industries to consider.
