Welcome from the Ambassador

13.09.2016 //

I am happy to welcome you to the website of the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Maputo. We aim through the website to provide information on the relationship between Norway and Mozambique; information of relevance to Norwegian companies that are considering doing business in Mozambique; and information to Mozambican and other citizens who plan to visit Norway. You will also find information on the relationship between Norway and the two other countries covered by our embassy, namely Swaziland and Mauritius.

Norway and Mozambique celebrate a relationship of almost half a century. Over the nearly 40 years that have passed since Norad established its first office in Mozambique, the development cooperation has included a broad spectrum of sectors and institutions. Norway aims to increase support targeting private sector development, focusing on sectors that are key to the country’s development, including renewable energy, petroleum, agriculture and fisheries. Norway and Mozambique also have a rich and longstanding cooperation in the cultural field.

Mozambique is blessed with a rich variety of natural resources. Of particular relevance to Norway, are the enormous gas discoveries made over the past decade. The Embassy encourages Norwegian companies to engage in Mozambique, and aims through our website to provide updated and relevant information that will make it easier for the companies to do so.

Mozambican and other citizens who plan to visit Norway will find the relevant information about visa requirements, as well as links to websites that provide information on study and work opportunities in Norway.

I hope you will find our website both informative and interesting. If you have any comments or questions, please do not hesitate to contact us on emb.maputo@mfa.no. Your feedback is important to us.
