Luísa Diogo says that good governance only happens when there is inclusive development.
The woman who dominates the corridors of the country’s economy and development was addressing the second Joaquim Chissano Annual Class “Economic Governance and Social Development: Challenges for Mozambique” after Jamisse Taimo, president of the Joaquim Chissano Foundation’s Institute of Governance for Peace and Leadership, presented a brief profile of the speaker.
Speaking about good governance, Diogo said that the recent discovery of natural resources in Mozambique had opened a new perspective for the economy, but warned that there must be common ground between leaders and society.
Luisa Diogo also said that Mozambique needed to develop other sectors, such as agriculture, without excessive dogma. It was important to empower the private sector to this end, she said.
Among several positions Luísa has held in the past are prime minister and head of negotiations on debt forgiveness, a process she wrote about in her book ‘A Sopa da Madrugada'[‘Soup of the Dawn’]. Currently, Diogo is the Chairperson of Beluluane Industrial Park and of Barclays Mozambique.
