Africa Oil & Power (AOP) will host the Mozambique Gas & Power (MGP) 2021 Presidential Award Ceremony on March 8, in which its prestigious “Person of the Year 2020” award will be presented to the President of the Republic of Mozambique H.E. Filipe Jacinto Nyusi. Attended by industry leaders and government representatives, the ceremony will include speakers from the Ministry of Mineral Resources and Energy and the African Energy Chamber. The ceremony will precede a day of technical workshops on March 9, hosted on AOP’s digital platform and in collaboration with ENH, emphasizing capacity building across diversified sectors.
For the first time, AOP is incorporating virtual formats into its event calendar to provide global attendees the opportunity to attend and participate, despite current travel and meeting restrictions. In a bid to showcase progressive energy and non-energy initiatives taking place across Mozambique – as well as drive local content, sustainable project development and financial inclusion – a series of virtual workshops will be held by leading companies in Mozambique on March 9. These workshops will target a wide range of subjects, including capacity building, critical infrastructure, security and community and deal-making across the energy value chain.
Organizations that wish to lead a workshop can apply by contacting email@example.com and interested attendees may register for their virtual pass here (https://bit.ly/3rIGlWq).
AOP’s Person of the Year award is presented to exceptional individuals who display leadership, innovation and integrity in positioning their respective countries or organizations at the forefront of the global energy sector. President of the Republic of Mozambique H.E. Filipe Jacinto Nyusi has steered Mozambique toward energy success in the face of global economic challenges and is responsible for Mozambique’s industry expansion and sustained attraction of foreign direct investment – including several multibillion-dollar natural gas projects. The ceremony is dedicated to celebrating this achievement through the presentation of the award.
Media representatives are invited to apply to join the award ceremony as virtual guests. They are welcome to register here (https://bit.ly/3rIGlWq) if you wish to apply to attend as media. In-person delegate passes are extremely limited and by invite only.
