Mozambique Economic Outlook

  • In 2013 real GDP posted robust 7% growth, although lower than expected due to severe floods early in the year. The progressive increase in coal production and the implementation of large infrastructure projects, coupled with budgetary expansion, are expected to continue to drive growth, projected at 8.5% in 2014 and 8.2% in 2015.
