It's centered around activities and mechanisms aimed at maximizing knowledge and skills transfer to the Government, Mozambican companies, and national citizens.

Market Study

TotalEnergies’ Local Content strategy extends to not only project direct requirements, but also to the status of economic development in the Cabo Delgado Province. In alignment with this Local Content strategy, the Cabo Delgado Market Study was commissioned to establish the Province’s competences in terms of supply of goods and services, by providing market information on various actors, including companies, business associations and technical vocational training institutes, and was conducted by Deloitte. The key sectors assessed during the study were civil and construction, transport and logistics and general trade.

The study also allowed the establishment of an updated database of 1137 companies, the quantitative and qualitative analysis of the ecosystems of the main actors in each of the sectors and mapping of the main sources of supply in the province.
