Mozambique: Impact of the Liberalization of Air Transport On Tourism and General Economy in Mozambique

Maputo — Mozambique has taken important steps to implement a policy of liberalizing the national airspace, but further efforts are needed to implement these policies and promote greater competition and private sector participation.

In this context, the CTA, with funding from USAID -SPEED, is conducting a study to assess the economic impact of greater liberalization of civil aviation in Mozambique. This study will serve as a basic document for the defense and promotion of an efficient and competitive market for air transport in the country and the region. Thus a breakfast meeting with the theme "Impact of liberalization of air transport in tourism and general economy in Mozambique" will be held on March 20, 2014.

Speaker: Rafael Enriquez - expert planning of infrastructure and civil aviation matters.
