Facts about Mozambique

Area: total: 801 ,590 sq km land: 784 ,090 sq km water: 17 ,500 sq km
Background: Almost five centuries as a Portuguese colony came to a close with independence in 1975. Large-scale emigration by whites , economic dependence on South Africa , a severe drought , and a prolonged civil war hindered the country's development until the mid 1990's. The ruling Front for the Liberation of Mozambique (FRELIMO) party formally abandoned Marxism in 1989 , and a new constitution the following year provided for multiparty elections and a free market economy. A UN-negotiated peace agreement between FRELIMO and rebel Mozambique National Resistance (RENAMO) forces ended the fighting in 1992. In December 2004 , Mozambique underwent a delicate transition as Joaquim CHISSANO stepped down after 18 years in office. His elected successor , Armando Emilio GUEBUZA , promised to continue the sound economic policies that have encouraged foreign investment. Mozambique has seen very strong economic growth since the end of the civil war largely due to post-conflict reconstruction.
