With an unrivalled position in Africa thanks to an ongoing investment in its capacity for the mobilisation of resources for the completion of large-scale projects, Mota-Engil Africa has a strategic perspective in the long term and a broad horizon of action while it endeavours to establish ever closer partnerships in infrastructure projects in areas as varied as Transport and Logistics, Energy, Oil & Gas, Mining and the Environment.

With a leading position in markets such as Mozambique and Malawi, Mota-Engil throughout its history has promoted an expansion strategy into new markets, in order to develop projects tailored to its customers’ needs, bringing the African continent into line with its potentialities.
