+Emprego Project Rewards Outstanding Companies for Promoting Employment in Cabo Delgado

The Confederation of Economic Associations (CTA), in partnership with the +Emprego project, an action funded by the European Union (EU) and co-financed and managed by Camões IP, on Thursday 21 March awarded the companies that stood out in promoting jobs for young people in the province of Cabo Delgado, in the north of the country.

The aim of this initiative is to give visibility and recognition to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in that province that stand out for their Social, Environmental and Corporate Governance (ESG) Responsibility, promoting the employability of young people and adopting a stance of social and corporate responsibility.

During the awards ceremony, three prizes were awarded in different categories: youth employment, women’s employment and innovative people management practices. Of the 23 participating companies, three were honoured in this edition: PANGEA DEVELOPMENT, LDA (oil & gas), SAC AGRIBUSINESS (poultry farming) and GRAFICA ABS, LDA (Printing and Screen Printing).

As well as receiving symbolic prizes, the companies gained access to the 2024 Annual Private Sector Conference (CASP), participation in international events or fairs and training in people management.

During the event, the director of the National Employment Institute (INEP), Juvenal Dengo, emphasised the institution’s commitment to promoting employment and supporting initiatives like this, and encouraged the winners “not to rest on past achievements, but to continue to be models of excellence for other companies”.

For his part, the president of the CTA, Agostinho Vuma, emphasised the importance of this campaign in giving visibility to local SMEs and promoting corporate social responsibility.

“Through a careful and competitive process, the competing companies were called upon to showcase their actions to promote decent employment, valuing good employability practices for young women and people with disabilities, as well as highlighting innovative human resources management practices,” he explained.

Portugal’s ambassador, António Costa Moura, emphasised the need for coordination between all players in order to face the challenges facing the region (terrorist attacks), praising the +Emprego project as an example.

“The best strategy for dealing with the vicissitudes facing the province and its population is to invest in real coordination between all the players involved, and the +Emprego project helps to do this. We have to bring the objectives together and be a centre that unites wills in order to achieve concrete and highly operational results,” she said.

In the same context, the project’s coordinator, Ana Cristina Paulo, emphasised the challenges faced by SMEs in Mozambique and the importance of corrective measures to improve the business environment.
