Mozambique’s enhanced international profile, reflecting the gains from more than two decades of peace and democracy and recent significant gas and coal finds, brings new challenges to the country’s leaders tasked with ensuring effective long-term resource governance and, in the short-term, responding to rising socio-economic pressures. In the context of the inauguration of a newly elected legislature in January 2015, parliamentarians from FRELIMO (Frente de Libertação de Moçambique), RENAMO (Resistência Nacional Moçambicana) and MDM (Movimento Democrático de Moçambique) will discuss their role and priorities in supporting improved governance and economic transformation in Mozambique.
