Republic of Mozambique


Brazil recognized the independence of Mozambique in 1975, the same day of its proclamation. This same year, diplomatic relations were established between the two countries. The Embassy of Brazil in Maputo was created in 1976; the Embassy of Mozambique in Brasília was inaugurated in 1998.

Technical cooperation is the linchpin of the relationship between Brazil and Mozambique, with partnerships in areas such as health, agriculture, education and professional training. Some of the projects of bilateral cooperation with Mozambique are among the highest figure ever performed by Brazil.

Trade shows strong growth trend, having quadrupled in the period 2008 to 2012. The actions of Brazilian companies in the country are diversified – covering sectors such as energy, mining, and infrastructure –, and tend to grow, contributing to the development of Mozambique.
