Inclusive growth in Mozambique – scaling-up research and capacity

Event

Open forum on macroeconomic scenarios and challenges in the present situation

The growth objectives of the Mozambican economy and the current challenges it faces make increasingly more important the adoption, development, and utilization of macroeconomic consistency models. These grant the opportunity to anticipate/foresee situational scenarios, as well as structural scenarios, and prepare adequate policies. 

This public forum held on 25 October 2016 aimed to:

  • Present the most recent macroeconomic trends of the Mozambican economy
  • Present and discuss a set of plausible mid-term scenarios using a model of macroeconomic consistency
  • Promote the exchange of perspectives from relevant actors of the macroeconomic policy and financial sector on the macroeconomic challenges of Mozambique
  • Promote the public debate on the macroeconomic challenges of Mozambique
