The main purpose of the study is to present a number of technical, financial and legally viable recommendations to challenge Mozambique contractors’ bottlenecks.

The study shall encompass the following areas of focus, namely:
1. Desk review
2. Data collection
3. Problem analysis and baseline study (Situation analysis of the Mozambique contractors)
4. Findings
5. Conclusions and recommendations (Financial, technical and legal viability) in order to evaluate the technical and professional capacities of the existing, locally based civil works construction firms seen in relation to the demand for upgrading/rehabilitation/major maintenance for the existing infrastructures.

Despite the knowledge-transfer opportunities presented by Mozambique’s geographical proximity to South Africa, and the notable growth in infrastructure projects, the domestic contractor industry does not appear to be engaging effectively in the road construction sector.

The lack of involvement of the domestic contractor base in the execution of road infrastructure projects also translates into economic losses at national levels. Accordingly, within the overall objective of developing the road transport sector, the subject project includes a component for diagnosing, through workshops and a study, the challenges preventing the growth of the domestic industry and putting forward recommendations to policymakers.
