The countdown has begun to the much anticipated 10th edition of Mozambique’s Leading & Longest Running Natural Resource Event; where local, regional and global leaders connect. The 2024 Mozambique Mining and Energy Conference (MMEC) taking place from 17 to 18 April 2024 at the prestigious Joaquim Chissano International Conference Centre in Maputo. Widely regarded as the premier business event for local, regional, and international stakeholders including government officials and senior representatives from the extractive and power generation industries, MMEC 2024 will focus on the theme “Partnerships for Prosperity: Unlocking Mozambique’s Resources to Advance National & Regional Economic Growth.” It is the perfect platform to engage with the government on its plans and vision for the sector, to access specific industry and project opportunities in the natural resources sector, and to cement business to business partnerships and investment deals with key decision makers.
MMEC is planned and organized by AME Mocambique in association with Empresa Nacional de Hidrocarbonetos (ENH) and it is supported by the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy (MIREME)
MMEC’s highly successful 9th edition in 2023 was officially inaugurated by His Excellency Filipe Jacinto Nyusi, President of the Republic of Mozambique other international and regional stake holders such as His Excellency Eng. Mohamed Hamel, Secretary General, Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF), Honourable Carlos J. Zacarias, Minister of Mineral Resources and Energy of Mozambique, Honourable Ibrahim Matola, Minister of Energy of Malawi, Honourable Monica Chang’anamuno, Minister of Mining of Malawi, Honourable Magna Mudyiwa, Deputy Minister of Energy and Power Development of Zimbabwe. The event saw over 520 delegates from more than 20 countries in attendance, consolidating its position as one of the largest national, regional, and global events uniting industry players. The 10th edition is set to scale even greater heights as a special commemorative edition recognising MMEC’s well over a decade’s contribution to the development of Mozambique and the region.
“This conference was extremely important for the energy, mining and hydrocarbon sector as it managed to bring together raw material processors (in the mining sector), energy transformers (through transforming companies such as Globelec and others), service providers and oil companies.
The 2023 edition proved to be different and unique as the greater participation of countries from the Southern African region, such as Malawi, Zimbabwe, RSA and others, was notable. We also saw through the audience that the investing countries were on a smaller scale, which shows that the Austral region is concerned with finding suppliers and energy providers in the region without this creating disruption in the concept of the energy transition, that is, sustainable clean energy and payable at a cost that reaches all social strata, achieving what is called the Energy Trilema – energy equity, security and energy sustainability.”
“The MMEC 2023 was a well-organized and very high-level event, with several decision makers attending and available to network. The panel discussions and the seniority of the speakers allowed for valuable understanding and insights to the Energy and Mining sector, offering perspective for how these industries will shape the Country and the region in the next decade!”
“Talking about MMEC 2023 is talking about a great asset for the process of catalyzing the industry in Mozambique, this year we had the presence of great African leaders linked to the sector, so it was a magical moment where we could have the opportunity to hear the experiences of specialists in the sector, and to assess the stage of the energy transition process and the contribution of national and international partner companies in the development of the country.
