Mozambique’s 16th Annual Private Sector Conference (XVI CASP), due to take place on 13 and 14 March, was launched yesterday.
This year’s conference will focus on enhancing agribusiness and the provision of services to oil and gas projects, with an exhibition for national entrepreneurs to showcase their ability to provide services for mega-projects.
National entrepreneurs will enjoy the opportunity to interact with large oil companies and broaden their knowledge of companies’ needs while bolstering their networking base.
Mozambique’s private sector has acknowledged weaknesses in companies’ capacity and certification, a challenge they are working to overcome and which the Conference will help address.
Conference promoter the Mozambican Business Confederation (CTA) expects more than 2,000 participants, including national and international investors, prospectors, and representatives of the Mozambican government. Last year’s conference was opened by President Nyusi.
Also yesterday, CTA chairman Agotinho Vuma inaugurated new directors, including a chairman of the General Assembly to replace Rogério Manuel, who died more than a month ago in an aviation accident.
