Agility Africa, a multinational investment and logistics firm, plans to introduce Mozambique to its world class warehouses. In a statement issued this May, the company said its famous warehouse parks will make doing business easier and less risky, thereby attracting new multinational companies to Mozambique.
“Agility is a long-term sustainable investor and is a strong advocate of the future of Mozambique,” said Deanne De Vries, Senior Vice President for Agility Africa in a statement issued this week.
She noted that the multinational company has been rapidly expanding across the continent.
Her comments come ahead of the second annual bilingual MozamReal Property Forum taking place on June 5th in Maputo, where De Vries will present a detailed view, and site tour, of the warehousing giant’s first phase of 32,000 square meters of A-grade warehousing space suitable for storage, distribution, packaging, processing and light industrial work.
The Forum is a conference centered on the Mozambican real estate sector. The event provides a singular opportunity and platform for top private and public-sector stakeholders to network, debate and discuss opportunities and challenges within the local property sector.
De Vries’ robust views are shared by the host of MozamReal, API Events’ Kfir Rusin. As a pan African business to business networking conference, API Events’ forums are synonymous for driving investment and formalizing the investment opportunity in local markets.
“For investors looking to position themselves for growth in one of the continent’s biggest future economies, Mozambique provides a strategic long-term growth opportunity with exceptional opportunities in hubs from Maputo to Pemba, Tete, Nampula and more,” Rusin commented.
With conservative growth forecasts predicting a doubling of Mozambique’s GDP in the next four to five years, the global logistics giant’s future growth strategy is increasingly geared towards the continent and in lynchpin markets such as Mozambique.
“Agility is building a pan-African network of international standard warehouse parks that will provide the warehousing infrastructure for companies to access the burgeoning African market supporting imports and exports and enabling the development of trade internationally, domestically and regionally,” said De Vries.
Rusin believes that Agility’s local and global positioning in the market is effective and generating local excitement in a sector that is recovering rapidly.
“Our 2019 theme is ‘Positioning for Growth’, and we believe that Agility are just the first movers in a market that will rapidly transform over the next couple of years,” he concluded.
