UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) offer a broad range of help, tailored to the specific needs of the company requesting it. This could include high level lobbying, in-depth reporting on market conditions including regulations and potential, help with relevant meetings and invitations to events in the UK to meet senior decision makers. UKTI's High Value Opportunities (HVO) programme, which helps UK-based firms to capitalise on major projects worldwide, includes oil and gas opportunities in Mozambique. In the last year, UKTl has reopened an office in Maputo and has helped a broad range of companies on this basis.
