OzMozis Limitada (OzMozis) is a development and investment consultancy and services company registered and based in Maputo, Mozambique.
OzMozis was founded in 2009 by Dr. Michael Baxter, former World Bank Director in southern Africa. Having worked in development in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, and Latin America for over 30 years, Michael has extensive experience and networks in the public and private sectors in southern Africa and beyond. He has an innate ability to produce incisive analysis and advice in a range of sectors. Highest quality, concise reporting and the most insightful and practical cross-sectoral advice are hallmarks of his and his team’s work.
The OzMozis team is composed primarily of highly-skilled and independent-thinking Mozambicans. Their staff and key consultants are deeply experienced in local culture and ways of working. They understand how to design and deliver successful private and public sector development initiatives and investments.
OzMozis provides quality analysis, strategic planning, program/project design and support to investors, governments and development donors. They focus on quality and practical advice and analysis, and on results.
Their work is built on the recognition that sustainable development is best delivered through clearly designed and monitored programs, and on the alignment of investment programs with government priorities and national development goals. In sum, they provide practical advice to help clients get positive results from their investments.
