Proof of the Economic Benefits of More Intra-African Trade – the case of the Maputo Corridor
The macroeconomic impact of the Maputo Logistics Corridor (CLM) over the last 10 years is estimated at just over US$2bn in economic activities carried out in the SADC region. The figures are the result of a study carried out by the Port of Maputo concessionaire and Standard Bank. The study concludes that the impact of CLM on GDP was US$2,086bn; that the CLM created just over 331,500 jobs and yielded US$489m in taxation for the 3 countries connected by the corridor (SA, Mozambique, Eswatini) over the last decade. Its impact on the balance of payments was just over US$1bn.
