© LE DESSOUS DES CARTES – ARTE – 14.01.2017
Le dessous des cartes (an original production by Arte TV) questions the energy potential of Mozambique. That country of the southern part of the continent already exports 2/3 of the electricity it produces. But the possibilities are far from over. The coal from Tete province (one of the world largest unexploited reserve) and the natural gas from Nacala could both be sources of prosperity for Maputo.
Still, Mozambican authorities need to address the threat of political opposition (the Renamo took up arms again in 2015) and build relevant infrastructures that make their country draw profit from this potential.
