Inclusive Growth in Mozambique: Annual Conference

On 27 November the Inclusive Growth in Mozambique programme will host a conference, which brings together researchers, government representatives, policy advisors, and development practitioners to discuss and share the recent results, as well as new research methodologies, of the work of the programme researchers and partners.

With both local and international speakers, the conference will promote in-depth analysis on subjects that range from poverty to youth employment, as well as natural resources in Mozambique. The main goal is to inform new policies to promote inclusive growth in Mozambique.

Participants are also welcome to take part in the related Public Forum: 'Mozambique as a natural gas exporter: lessons from the past experiences' on 28 November 2018. Both events will take place at Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence in Maputo. Please register for the events here and find the press release here.
