BALANCE OF PAYMENTS AND RELATIONS WITH FOREIGN CURRENCY Mozambique depends largely on foreign assistance to balance the balance of payments hanging seriously at increasing the foreign debt. The fact imports exceed exports by far. The situation should improve in the medium term. The connections and transport of goods with South Africa and the rest of Southern Africa are improving as well as foreign investment. Among these investments are: metal production, natural gas, power generation, agriculture, fisheries, timber and transportation services. Mozambique has received a formal cancellation of foreign debt thanks to an initiative of the IMF
BALANCE OF PAYMENTS AND RELATIONS WITH FOREIGN CURRENCY The main problems of the country are for the most part those advocated by the International Reconstruction Conference held in Rome in 2001. At the conference, they were taken as those related to the priority problems of the rural sector and environmental rehabilitation.
DEVELOPMENT POLICIES Within the Human Development Index ranking for 2007, Mozambique occupies the 172th position out of 177 countries, ranking in the group of LDCs. Despite the high poverty rate and the numerous problems the country is shown by many as an example of good implementation of development policies and cooperation with international institutions (IMF, World Bank). The economic growth rate remains high (around 8%), at least if compared with that of other neighboring countries, and the development prospects of less gloomy than the rest of Sub Saharan Africa.
