Lusa - Business News - Mozambique: Country has 'no lack of qualified staff for gas sector' - minister




Maputo, Feb. 11 (Lusa) – Mozambique’s minister of science, technology, higher education and technical vocations, Jorge Nhambiu, has said that the country has the qualified staff to work in the exploration of natural gas, at the start-up phase.
Multinationals, he told Lusa in interview, “want mechanics, electricians [and] carpenters and we have these staff". There would, he stressed, be more demand for staff trained in vocations than in higher education.
Companies, he argued, bring technology to be used in Mozambique and "what they need most are technicians who make things happen and not to do the projects that they have to implement."
The major challenge for the country is the hygiene and safety aspect, as the oil and gas sector has specific requirements there.
"This electrician of ours, whom we train here, is the same one who will work on the gas exploration projects, but they [the multinationals] want greater competence in the area of security," he explained.
The government has designed a program to bolster the curriculum of vocational education in matters of occupational safety and hygiene, in a bid to respond to the requirements, he said.
Despite this commitment to vocational education, Mozambique is "orienting higher courses to the oil sector," he told Lusa. "For example, Eduardo Mondlane University (EMU) has opened a centre of excellence for the oil and gas industry that is to have a Masters’ degree in the first instance, but it is presumed that in a short time there will also be PhDs.
The government is also pondering creating a higher education institution in Cabo Delgado, where the ventures are being set up to exploit natural gas from the sea bottom, within three years. The project is being done with the involvement of a higher education institution in Mauritius, Nhambiu added.
In addition to Mauritius, China is also working with Mozambique in higher education. According to the minister, it is the country that grants most scholarships to Mozambican students, and a partner in the training of teachers for vocational education.
