"Mozambique is endowed with ample arable land, water, energy, as well as mineral resources and newly discovered natural gas offshore; three deep seaports; and a relatively large potential pool of labor.

It is also strategically located, with four of the six countries it borders landlocked and hence dependent on it as a conduit to global markets.
Mozambique’s strong ties to the region’s economic engine, South Africa, underscore the importance of its economic, political, and social development to the stability and growth of Southern Africa as a whole."
