The huge potential of Mozambique’s extractive sector has attracted many large multinational companies and stimulated infrastructure projects. Now the country faces the mammoth task to develop a national framework that allows an inclusive, sustainable and just economic development. Only if the local workforce profits by job creation and qualification, and economic gains are channelled into public policies that serve the majority of the people, the exploitation of natural resources leads to prosperity for the entire population.
In this context, FES Mozambique promotes continuous debate between decision makers, academics, and activists to develop ideas for a socially just and sustainable economic development. Trade unions are crucial in these debates to secure workers’ rights and guarantee inclusive economical activities.
