AGRICULTURE

As of 2012, the GDP for Mozambique was $26 billion, with an ongoing growth rate of about 7 percent. Mozambique’s agriculture sector represents 24 percent of GDP, with primary exports of cashews, cotton and sugar.

Mozambique’s smallholder productivity growth is fragile as subsistence agriculture employs most of the work force.

Of the total land area, only 6 percent is utilized for cultivated crops, while no measurable amount of the total land supports permanent crops such as fruit- and nut-bearing trees.

CHALLENGES

Although Mozambique’s economy is improving, agricultural productivity remains weak and also suffers from substantial trade imbalances.

As of 2012, the country continues to rely on foreign assistance.
