Release of a new report on policies to promote agro-industry in Mozambique

“The import of 17 tons of potatoes means one hectare of arable land idle in the country and 7 jobs created abroad of which 4 would be fixed… This means that just with the potato imports, Mozambique exports approximately 20,000 direct jobs per year of which more than 12,000 would be fixed.” – Report on Challenges and Opportunities in the Agri-Industry in Mozambique, 2021.

WIN, in partnership with CTA, has released a new report “Challenges and Opportunities in the Agri-Industry in Mozambique”, that sets out the context of a country where 80% of workers are in the agricultural sector, yet sadly most staple food products are imported. Read the summary of this report and its seven recommendations to overcome this phenomenon and create more local jobs and prosperity, inclusive of women.
