BMI View: Based on the investment opportunities through its vast natural resources, Mozambique has seen solid growth in 2014, which is expected to continue in 2015 - al though at slightly lower rates. This reduction in GDP and construction sector growth is due to general economic headwinds, including a growing budget deficit and public debt, as well as project delays undermining overall investment potentials. We nonetheless expect solid sector growth of around 6% for 2015.
With about USD30bn worth of infrastructure projects in the pipeline currently and 8% of real GDP growth forecast in 2015, the outlook for Mozambique this year is positive. While 2014, however, saw the construction industry grow by almost 10%, we expect rates to slowly decrease in our 2014-2024 forecast period, averaging at 4.3%. For 2015, this means an expected sector growth of 6.24%. Although Mozambique remains one of the strongest markets for growth in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), the reasons for the slowing growth are economic headwinds, including a growing budget deficit, as well as legislative/administrative shortcomings and project delays that are currently deterring potential investors. These trends have negatively affected our perception of potential Industry Rewards in Mozambique as well and led to its drop in BMI's Risk/Reward Index.

Currently, about USD20bn of transport projects are under way, which include railway and port construction and expansion, as well as critical road upgrades. Considering the country's vast and growing natural resource reserves, with natural gas leading the way, the country is experiencing another USD10bn worth of power projects as growing industrial activity demands greater electricity supply with recovered hydrocarbons acting as feedstock. This includes electrification programmes, as well as new power plants. The...
