Mozambique Advancing to Improve Competitiveness of Logistics Corridors

As part of the country’s Economic Acceleration Package (PAE), the stimulus package launched by the Government in August 2022 to improve the country’s business environment and promote stronger transparency and governance an official mission with representatives from key ministries visited the borders of Beitbridge (Zimbabwe/South Africa) and Khazunluga (Zambia/Zimbabwe) to learn about the recently implemented modernised border posts in the region.

The visit took place between April 17 and 19 and was aimed to analysing the management model of both border posts.  In line with one of the activities planned under Measure 11 of the PAE (promotion of the modernisation of borders in Mozambique), during the visit the group of Government representatives was able to observe some of the advantages generated by modernisation, such as the simplification of procedures through a modern integrated management system – which ensure that there is no human interference in the flow of vehicles, a significant increase in customs revenue, border fees and migration fees, and a reduction in smuggling.
