Why Mozambique?

  • Strong economic growth in 2016, will be built on the foundations of the construction, transportation and services sector, with GDP rising from 7% (2015) to 8.2% (2016).
  • The construction sector grew by nearly 10% and contributed some 3.5% to GDP in 2014. Expected sector growth to slow down to some 6% in 2015 and an annual average of 4.3% over the next decade.
  • Due to the recent economic boom in Mozambique generated by natural resources such as gas and coal, significant knock on effects have been witnessed in the country’s building and construction industries.
  • Palma “City of Gas.” will service the offshore Rovuma Basin. The project’s estimate cost is $50 billion, as drilling wells and building two LNG plants alone could cost up to $16 billion. The future city will be home to some 250,000 people.
  • Rural – urban migration, has created a major housing deficit, as well as the emergence of an upwardly mobile Mozambican middle class in search of quality accommodation. Maputo and neighbouring Matola are home to some 2.5 million inhabitants, which is expected to increase to over four million by 2025. In Maputo, the area of the former Facim Exhibition Centre is seeing the development of a complex of offices, apartments, hotels and shopping centres to the value of 1.2 billion dollars.
  • Mega infrastructure projects have meant that the demand for heavy construction machinery is exponential.
  • Mozambique has a high potential to develop the country as a tourist destination, this means the planned construction of numerous holiday villages with 14 in Nampula Province alone.
  • Luxury property market growth can be seen in Maputo’s Polana Caniço district, which now accommodates many of the expatriate community. Projects such as the $45 million Maputo City Tower (27-story building offering 135 luxury apartments, as well as office and retail space), have been started to cater for their needs.
