Grupo Teixeira Duarte started its activity in Mozambique in 1982 by participating in the tender for the repair of the bridge over the Zambezi River, in Tete. That was the first of many important works executed in the country, where Teixeira Duarte has been maintaining a prominent position, with special emphasis on public works, which have allowed the development of Mozambique, namely the school estate, the road links and bridges and, more recently, the large work for the Bank of Mozambique.
The consolidated position in the market has enabled the Group to diversify its activity to other business areas, currently also operating in the Concessions and Services, Real Estate and Hospitality sectors.
