Mozambique Energy & Industry Summit and Field Ready join forces for annual Mozambican youth empowerment event 

The Generation Ready conference is set to return for its third edition on 2nd July at the Avani Pemba Beach Hotel, Cabo Delgado, hosted this year as a prelude to the 3rd Mozambique Energy & Industry Summit (MEIS 2024), in a first-time unique collaboration between Field Ready and GEP.

Gilberto Botas, Chairman of Field Ready Mozambique explained: “Bringing together a community of likeminded people devoted to youth employability is central to the Field Ready’s work in Mozambique. We are delighted to partner with the Mozambique Energy and Industry Summit (MEIS) to run the Generation Ready event, where we will bring together the Government of Mozambique, industry leaders, educators and young people.”

The event will bring together young Mozambicans with business leaders, government and educators to network and share ideas about how to prepare the youth of Mozambique for the future of work. 

Specifically, it will highlight how sustainable social impacts are being delivered across Mozambique, with real examples of how working together can support youth employability, promote local training and recruitment, support communities and unlock a universe of opportunities for young people. 

Prominent speakers and panel discussions will cover various themes during the day, including practical applications to support the youth’s transition from education to employment, the role of major projects in creating job opportunities, collaboration between education and industry, and strategies for attracting and retaining top talent.

Following Generation Ready, the Mozambique Energy and Industry Summit (MEIS) edition will open on the 3 July, hosted by the Provincial Government of Cabo Delgado and the Mozambican Local Content Association (ACLM). 

Over two days, MEIS 2024 will bring together key national and international stakeholders, made up of respective governments and leading organisations across the region to share knowledge and drive business opportunities across the continent in the energy sector.

Speaking of the collaboration with Field Ready, Elthon Chemane, MEIS Chairman and President of the Mozambique Local Content Association (ACLM) added;

The highly successful 2nd Mozambique Energy and Industry Summit in 2023 was attended by a record number of delegates, engaged in a world-class programme led by prominent leaders from across the continent, who addressed the key challenges and opportunities throughout Mozambique’s energy and enterprise industry. Local content will be positioned as the nucleus to MEIS 2024, providing access to the projects requiring expertise and best practices both short term and long term as well as direct access for participants to the stakeholders throughout the country, enabling businesses to establish their position in one of the world’s true last frontiers.
