The 5th Mozambique Mining, Oil & Gas and Energy Conference and exhibition took place in Maputo from the 26 – 28th April 2016.

Under the theme of “Mozambique’s resources as the catalyst for Infrastructure Development, inclusive growth and economic transformation” the event was officially opened by H.E. Dr Pedro Couto, Minister, Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy, Republic of Mozambique, represented by Alfredo Nogueira Nampete, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy, who delivered the keynote opening address, alongside Dr Estêvão Sumburane, Chairman of AGMM, Omar Mithá, Chairman of ENH and other industry stakeholders.

This year’s discussions revolved around local content and the need for infrastructure development. The overall message conveyed during the event was that despite the current situation in Mozambique, there is a lot of room for growth across all three sectors.

The event was host to 19 Exhibitors, 410 Delegates, 59 Speakers and 1000 Visitors from 31 countries throughout Africa and abroad.

The high level of speakers and delegates allowed for excellent networking opportunities during the event.

We would like to thank speakers, participants and exhibitors for making the 2016 edition possible and a special thank you to our partners, AGMM and ENH for their continued support and the event sponsors for their commitment to the region.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Maputo for the 2018 MMEC event.
