Petroleum & Taxation Law Mozambique

Mozambique will see major developments and economic benefits over the next 5 years as a result of the gas discoveries and projects. However, companies are unsure of the legal and fiscal landscape governing the industry. On the 3 October, in Johannesburg, we will be hosting the Petroleum & Taxation Law Mozambique 1 Day Briefing.
