Presenting Mozambique business opportunities in Monaco

The Consulate of Mozambique in the Principality has hosted Mozambican Business Days, coinciding with guest visits from Africa and the 10th anniversary of the Honorary Consul’s appointment to Monaco.

Mozambican Consul Chris Becker has hit a milestone. As of this year, he has dedicated a decade of his career to diplomacy in the Principality and to mark the occasion, the Consulate hosted Mozambican Business Days from 26th to 29th April, a series of face-to-face and virtual meetings at the Hermitage Hotel geared toward strengthening the business bonds between Monaco and the African nation.

Chairman of African Lion Gold Cobus van Wyk, and Luis Mucave Jr from Third Way Africa and Co-Founder of the local Chamber of Oil and Gas, made the journey from Maputo to Monaco to take part in the event.

On 26th April, meetings were held with investors from Aurelys wealth management, ES-KO industrial services specialists, and Sensawild who is in wildlife tourism technology. Additional meetings were also held featuring companies from the energy, agriculture, exploration and mining, shipping, and medical sectors.

The next day, the Club of Monegasque Entrepreneurs in Africa (CEMA) held a forum on investment opportunities in Mozambique organised by Frederic Geerts from Rothschild & Co, where top players were in attendance.

On the 28th, private equity advisors Delta Capital conducted another investment conference with African Lion Gold, who have been operating in gold exploration in Mozambique’s northern province of Tete and is aiming to list as a publicly traded company later this year.

Investors were provided an international platform to form new relationships. The event was booked out well in advance with nearly 40 investors attending, six of whom participated online.
