Supporting the Policy Enabling Environment for Development

Trade & BEE

SPEED+ supports business, trade, and investment policies that promote private sector-led broad-based economic growth.  We collaborate with leaders in the Ministry of Industry and Trade who are working to design, promote, and coordinate reform across government and to implement market-oriented policies.  SPEED+ provides the Ministry with direct technical assistance on critical policies such as the National Trade Policy and Strategy and the African Growth and Opportunity Act Utilization Strategy.  SPEED+ also collaborates with the Confederation of Business Associations to develop evidence-based advocacy for reforms that enable growth, improve efficiency, and create jobs.  SPEED+ also supports Mozambique’s successful integration into global trade networks, through the implementation of the World Trade Organization Trade Facilitation Agreement, the elimination of technical barriers to trade and improved capacity to meet sanitary and phytosanitary standards required for agricultural exports.
