Last week His Royal Highness Crown Prince Haakon visited Mozambique, and several Norwegian companies took part in a business seminar in Maputo, co-hosted by NABA, NORWEP, the Norwegian embassy in Maputo and CTA.
Mozambique and Norway have been collaborating in the energy sector for more than 40 years. In November 2018 the President of Mozambique, H.E. Filipe Nyusi visited Norway and took part in the Mozambique-Norway Energy Investment Forum hosted by NABA, NORWEP, Confederation of Economic Association of Mozambique (CTA) and the Norwegian Embassy in Mozambique.
The private sector collaboration was further strengthened last week in relation to the official visit by HRH Crown Prince Haakon of Norway. The Norwegian interest is growing, especially within the energy sector, due to the large gas discoveries made by Mozambique. In the renewable energy sector, NABA member Scatec Solar has set up the country’s largest solar power park.
28 Norwegian companies took part in last week’s business seminar, together with Mozambican counterparts, and government representatives from Norway and Mozambique.
