Improving the competitiveness of the timber and wood sector 2006

1. Introduction

Mozambique must continue to grow rapidly in the next decade to reduce poverty. Growth will depend, in part, on Mozambique’s ability to take advantage of opportunities in international trade and investment by reducing transaction costs, increasing investment, and improving the competitiveness of labor-intensive industries—all of which must be integrated into the national
strategy to sustain rapid growth and reduce poverty.

To assist Mozambique with this strategy, the USAID-funded Trade and Investment project is supporting the Confederation of Mozambican Business Associations (CTA) and other agencies
and organizations inside and outside government to research and implement reform. This assistance includes activities related to improved trade and investment policies, technical and analytic analysis, policy coordination, and activities that will enable Mozambique’s labor-intensive producers to gain greater access to international markets.
