Mozambique faced an economic slowdown in 2019, mainly due to the negative impact of cyclones Idai and Kenneth, with GDP estimated to grow by 1.9%. Economic activity slowed in 2016–18, to an average of 3.7%, compared with 6.7% for 2015. This reduction resulted mostly from a decline in public and foreign direct investment.
Credit distributed to private sector in 2016 represents $3.8 billion.
The Mozambican Stock Exchange accounted 6 listed companies, representing, at the end of 2017, a market capitalization of $1 billion.
