National Trade Policy and Strategy

Mozambique’s Trade Policy and Strategy, the Commercial Policy and Strategy (PEC) was approved by the Council of Ministers through resolution number 25/98 on June 1, 1998 and officially published in Government Gazette on 07 July 1998.  The new Trade Policy should be a tool used by MIC to guide Mozambique’s overall approach to using Trade as a tool for economic development and job creation.  SPEED+ engaged two trade policy experts, one international and one Mozambican expert, to work with the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MIC) in the design of a trade policy and strategy, which will guide MICs overall trade engagement for the upcoming 5 years.  In Year 2, SPEED+ will finalize the drafting of the proposed Trade Policy and Strategy, ensure the its approval and implementation, including consultation workshops in the north, center and south.
