Officially named the Republic of Mozambique, Mozambique is a South African country which recently gained independence from Portugal in 1975.
While the official language of Mozambique is Portuguese, it’s only spoken as a second language by half of the population of around 24 million, which is comprised mostly by Bantu peoples (those who speak the Bantu language).
Mozambique holds an extensive number of natural resources and its economy is based mainly on agriculture, but the food and beverage industry as well as chemical manufacturing and aluminum and petroleum production are growing. Tourism is also on the rise.
