The Mozambican economy shrank by 2.4% year-on-year in the fourth quarter of 2020, following a 1.1% decline in the previous quarter, as the country struggled with terrorist attacks and as coronavirus-induced restrictions around the globe hit tourism-related sectors. The largest contraction was registered in the services sector (-4.1% vs -2.4% in Q2), led by hotels & restaurants (-22.5% vs -31.4%); transport & communications (-7.5% vs -1.2%) and financial services (-2.1% vs -2.1%). The primary sector also declined (-2.7% vs -1.9%), due to a slowdown in agriculture output (1.1% vs 3.2%) and a sharp contraction in mining (-13.3% vs -16.2%). Also, secondary activities relapsed (-2.3% vs 0.6%), dragged by utilities (-5.2% vs 4.1%) construction (-3.9% vs -0.2%) and manufacturing (-1.1% vs -0.9%). source: Instituto Nacional De Estatistica, Mozambique
