FACIM – Feira Agro-Pecuaria, Commercial and Industrial de Moçambique is a multi-sectorial Trade and Investment Fair in Mozambique organized by APIEX – an Investment & Exports Promotion Agency under the theme “Mozambique and the World: broadening the market, promoting investment and fostering partnerships”
The FACIM fair seeks to facilitate the contact with international exhibitors and stimulate consumption and economic integration in the Mozambique economy. With about 25 million inhabitants, where 3 million are concentrated in the capital city of Maputo, Mozambique is booming with an economic growth of 9% per year. The substantial economic development, liberalisation and market opening and privatisation of the economy and the creation of different areas of free investment, is creating ideal conditions for foreign investment in the country. Since 2012 the Trade Fair relocated to a municipal area outside the city, 30km from Maputo, known as the area of Marracuene.

• Have partial or full operation based in the North West Province
