Mozambique, one of the poorest countries in the world at independence, has emerged from decades of war to become one of Africa’s best-performing economies. Since the World Bank began operating in Mozambique in 1984, its assistance has evolved from helping to stabilize the economy in the 1980s to the current strategy that involves close collaboration with the government, development partners, and civil society.
