The Mozambican government has tightened restrictions on business missions by State officials, requiring that they only travel when it is impossible to carry out the intended activity by other means or platform.
The limitations on the travel of State employees are contained in Decree nº 80/2018, of December 21, published in the Bulletin of the Republic this week within the scope of “management of the State Budget”.
Under the decree, the executive requires a prior assessment of the need for the trip and that it manifests that it is impossible to carry out the activity by other means or available communication platform.
Travel must be strictly limited to the pursuit of the annual activity plan of each sector and included in the State Budget.
“The length of stay must be limited to the minimum necessary to fulfill the objectives of the trip,” reads the document.
At international events taking place abroad, Mozambique may be represented by its respective diplomatic mission, through prior articulation with the sector or related area, as to the matters to be addressed and the pronouncements to be made.
“The payment of subsistence allowance or of accommodation and food, according to the costs, is borne only by the organ or institution to which the official or agent of the State is bound,” reads the decree.
Last year, the Mozambican government cut off a number of privileges and perks for state leaders as part of austerity measures provoked by the 2015 economic crisis that the country plunged in.Source: Lusa
