Mozambique Infrastructure Report

BMI View: With USD 30bn of infrastructure projects in the pipeline , Mozambique is set for strong growth. Ongoing project delays have put some dampers on investor ent husiasm but BMI still estimates that the construction sector will average 6.7 % growth per annum over our forecast period from 2014 to 2023, driven by investment into infrastructure. We forecast construction industry growth to reach 9. 1 % in 2014, due to activity in freight transport and power projects, driven primarily by investment in mining and natural gas exploration.

Significant interest and investment in Mozambique's vast natural resources has prompted an infrastructure investment drive. This is the main factor guiding our forecast for average annual growth of 6.7% expected between 2014 and 2023, resulting in Mozambique being one of the strongest markets for growth in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).

Transport projects worth over USD20bn are in the pipeline, including rail links to ports and expanding the port capacity, including new deep water ports, to allow for greater exports. Power projects worth over USD10bn are also in the pipeline, as electrification programmes take effect, growing industrial activity demands greater electricity supply and hydrocarbons production provides feedstock for new capacity.

Mozambique's plans to increase its capacity to transport resources from the coal-rich Tete province to the Indian Ocean coast for export have moved forward with the announcement that Bangkok-based Italian-Thai Development has been awarded the contract to build a 525km rail line. As a result of numerous big-ticket projects in the pipeline, the country is attracting substantial investment interest from foreign players, such as Brazil's Vale and India's Jindal Steel . This is crucial for Mozambique's economic survival, due to the inability of the government to fund the necessary investment to support economic expansion.

However, it should be noted these projects are being developed...
