Developing Energy Resources in Mozambique

3 February 2017 - 12:00 to 13:00

Chatham House, London


HE Letícia Deusina da Silva Klemens, Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy, Republic of Mozambique
Chair: Dr Alex Vines OBE, Director, Area Studies and International Law; Head, Africa Programme, Chatham House



Mozambique could become one of the world’s largest Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exporters and  also has other extractive and renewable energy potential. Unlocking this potential depends on important policy decisions, and attracting long-term partnerships and investments at a time when increased global competition and supply are tempering expectations. Mozambique’s mounting debt burden and volatile domestic confidence also dented investor confidence in 2016.

At this meeting, Letícia Deusina da Silva Klemens, Mozambique minister of mineral resources and energy, will discuss the progress of developing the country’s extractive and renewable energy potential, and highlight the role of energy resources for the country’s greater economic ambitions.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
