Mozambique - Country Commercial Guide
Selling Factors and Techniques
Last published date:

Increased competition is creating demand for better service. Foreign companies are increasingly making inventory and technicians available to service their sales in Mozambique. Such services can be a competitive advantage and help build a good reputation with both resellers and consumers.

Local Professional Services

For information on local providers of consulting, marketing, event management, legal, tax, and financial services consult the U.S. Commercial Service.

Principal Business Associations

The major business associations that are relevant to U.S. companies are the American Chamber of Commerce Mozambique (AmCham), the Confederation of Business Associations (CTA), the Chamber of Commerce of Mozambique (CCM), and the Mozambican Business and Industry Association (ACIS).

It is important to note that local business and association leaders may be closely linked to the political elite and thus have conflicts of interest with certain business sectors. U.S. companies are advised to conduct due diligence before committing to a partnership.

Limitations on Selling U.S. Products and Services

There are no limitations specific to U.S. products and services, though the Mozambican Government is establishing a local content law that will require foreign companies to have a local partner. As of 2020, this law has not been approved by the government. At this time, the law is not specific as to what constitutes a local partner.
