Trade Development Mozambique
Mozambique is a least developed country with low socioeconomic indicators. It was highly indebted and reliant on donor aid to enhance economic development.
The country experiences many supply side challenges hindering trade competitiveness. Its market focus was very narrow, depending on a handful of traditional markets. The need for a National Export Strategy was evident and the Commonwealth Secretariat hired Leve Global to take up the challenge.
A number of activities were carried out in achieving the deliverables of this assignment including:
2. Oil Seeds,
3. Creative Industries,
4. Fisheries (Crustaceans, Mollusks and Fish), and
5. Fruits and Vegetables.
1. Trade Information and Commercial Intelligence
2. Access to Finance
3. Skills Development
4. Transportation and Logistics, and
5. Quality Management and Standards
The Mozambique National Export Strategy consisted of 119 strategic initiatives valued at over US $15 Million covering 5 priority sectors, 5 cross-cutting areas and implemented by over 20 public and private sector organisation.
Leve Global recommended strategies to encourage firms to move higher up the value chain and focus on organic agriculture to cater to high-end markets and market segments. For example, recommendation to focus on value-added processing for nuts exporting not just the raw form but more refined processed products such as, organic almond and macadamia milk.
