Mozambique is a Portuguese-speaking country of over 32 million people.  Located in southern Africa along the Indian Ocean, it has a surface area roughly the size of Texas and Louisiana.  The country’s coastline is over 1600 miles long extending from Tanzania to South Africa, or roughly the distance from Miami, FL, to Portland, ME.

Traditionally, Mozambique’s strongest industries are agriculture, construction, and finance, but with its rich natural reserves of coal, copper, aluminum, gold, gemstones (notably rubies), iron, critical minerals, and liquefied natural gas, the Government of Mozambique is interested in growing the mining and oil and gas sectors.  Tourism is another developing industry, due to the country’s pristine beaches and vast parks with diverse wildlife.
