BMI View: Mozambique's mining revenue will remain heavily dependent on the country's coal sector,leaving the sector exposed to continued global coal price weakness. Despite this, coal production growthwill continue to exceed gold output growth. Furthermore, both sectors will continue to attract interest fromoverseas investors.

Latest Developments & Structural Trends

- The suspension of donor aid to Mozambique in the wake of the hidden debt scandal has prompted us todowngrade our construction growth forecasts for 2016, to 4.0% in real terms down from the originalprojection of 4.8% (see 'Government Debt Scandal Weighs On Infrastructure Outlook', May 9). Thegovernment will struggle to fund the road and social infrastructure projects earmarked in its budget, asthe weak commodities outlook alongside high recurrent expenditure weighs on the fiscal balance.

- We have revised our coal production forecast on the back of persistent challenges facing the country'scoal sector. We forecast the country's coal production to grow from 8.0mnt in 2016 to 9.5mnt by 2020,representing an average growth of 4.2% y-o-y during 2016-2020.

- Mozambique's coal production growth will continue to be hampered by weak global coal prices, highdomestic start-up costs and inadequate infrastructure. Despite this, growth will be supported byincreasing investment coming into the market, which will support long-term production growth. A keyproject underway is the USD300mn modernisation project at the port of Nacala in the Nampula province,bolstered by funding from the Japanese government and on track for completion by 2020. Thedevelopment is supported by the 912km railway linking the port to the country's vast reserves in the Teteprovince, completed in 2014; and the Nacala-a-Velha coal terminal which opened in 2015. These projectsform part of the Nacala Logistics Corridor, commissioned by Vale in 2012 to link the reserves to the eastcoast of Mozambique. In 2015 the company received an USD300mn loan from the African DevelopmentBank to increase export capacity at the port of Beira.
