Up to 25% of the natural gas extracted should be earmarked for the domestic market, in order to stimulate industrialisation, Prime Minister Carlos Agostinho do Rosario told parliament on 30 November. He called for “the promotion of national content, through linkages between the large oil and gas projects and small and medium Mozambican enterprises, in order to maximise benefits in generating employment and income”.
