The new Commercial Code came into effect in September 2022. This very important legislation has resulted in various changes from the previous Commercial Code, including changes to the registration and classification of companies; types of companies; as well as the management, supervision and administration of companies. The method and requirements for governance and supervision of companies has changed too. All businesses operating in Mozambique, regardless of the industry, must adhere to this new Code.

African Influence Exchange is proud to be hosting a 2 day Masterclass on the New Commercial Code of Mozambique. This Masterclass will be presented in Portuguese in Maputo and in English as a live webinar.
