The government and the private sector are meeting in Pemba, Cabo Delgado, today at a seminar where US multinational Anadarko will present business opportunities adhering to the natural gas project to be developed in the country, and which may see its final investment decision in 2019.
At the opening of the event, Max Tonela, Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy said that the event was the materialisation of one of the challenges taken up by President Nyusi at the time of his inauguration in 2015.
“We look forward to this event translating the vision of your Excellence on the way to move towards integrated and inclusive development and a full and sustainable exploitation of the resources of the extractive industry,” Minister Tonela said.
The minister also said that the event was the result of a plan being developed with Anadarko since the government approved the start of the natural gas exploration project. Over a thousand participants have signed up for it.
“With this event, we intend to provide a broad and integrated view on the natural gas exploration project, and to ensure that all Mozambicans can access information on the opportunities generated on an equal basis,” Tonela said, adding that the seminar brought together representatives from all sectors concerned.
