Tuesday 9 July Confindustria organizes at its headquarters and in collaboration with the Embassy of Mozambique in Italy, the CTA, the CCMI and ENI, an Italy-Mozambique Business Forum, on the occasion of the official visit to Italy of the President of the Mozambican Republic, Felipe Nyusi.

Also in terms of the trade balance in the 2018 there was a positive improvement, with an increase in the 14% of the interchange value compared to the previous year (for a total of 12 billion USD). Mozambique is a country that has an abundance of natural resources, especially for the huge reserves of natural gas, coal, titanium, granite, gypsum, graphite and precious stones. Its geographical position is also strategic as a platform for access to East African countries, given that Mozambique offers an outlet to the sea to as many as six countries in the region.
Italy maintains particularly stable relations with the country (among the EU countries we are in fact the second supplier country, according to 2018 data), also thanks to the consolidated presence of large Italian groups, including in particular ENI, engaged in a series of exploration and production activities from the 2006.
