Mozambique Report Card by President H.E. Armando Guebuza

The President of the Republic of Mozambique, H.E. Mr. Armando Guebuza speaking at the 2011 Blouin Creative Leadership Summit.

What keeps President Armando Guebuza awake at night?-with all the work that he has to do daily as president, he gets very tired ....he sleeps 8^)

Key points and take aways:
  • The country has witnessed alot of positive strides since the end of the civil war
  • Growth rates at 7-8%... goal is to achieve two digit growth rates
  • Better utilization of local resources towards economic growth
  • 95% enrollment rate into primary education and would like 100% enrollment-though classes are overly congested. Goal is to have at least 30 students per class.
  • Mozambique used to import maize but stopped importing maize in 2003
  • More than 1 million Mozambique citizens outside the country and many have returned home to settle and help rebuild the country
  • 4.5 internally displaced... a majority returned back to their original home areas to begin to rebuild their lives
