AWEX first participation to the Maputo International Fair FACIM14/10/2018

AWEX participated for the firts time to the international FACIM fair that took place from 27 August until 2 September at the Marracuene ground, north of Maputo.

The AWEX was present with a prospection stand. Our objective was to evaluate the opportunities for companies from Wallonia to do business in Mozambique. We used this platform to present and promote the assets of our Wallonia region in various sectors of the industry.

It also allows us to interact with the local authorities: on the opening day of the fair, we were honoured to receive the visit of the Prime Minister, Mr Carlos Agostinho do Rosário on our stand. We emphasized our interest in his country and our willingness to increase the bilateral economic trade between our countries.

Over the course of the fair, we received the visit of about 150 people, 30 of them with potential business interest.

The follow up of our participation to the fair will be the organisation of a trade mission to Mozambique in 2020. We believe the country offers multiple business opportunities for our exporters, as its economy improves and the development in the gas sector continues to have positive impact on the GDP.
