dc.description.abstract Prior to independence from Portugal in 1975, Angola had a highoutput economy with a rapidly increasing manufacturing sector, near selfsuffiency in agriculture, and crop surpluses for export. The country still has abundant natural wealth, but decades of civil war, disastrous economic policies and foreign meddling has impoverished Angola and beggared her people. Mozambique was never really developed economically since the Portuguese saw it principally as a transport route between the coast and its landlocked neighbours. Mozambique nevertheless possesses considerable development potential. Major rivers offer the possibility of crop irrigation and hydro-electric power, whilst mineral reserves include iron ore and tantalite. However, the civil war, which ended in 1992, and Marxist-Leninist policies severely damaged all sectors of the economy and the bulk of the countries resources remain under-exploited. When businessmen consider possible foreign locations, Angola and Mozambique are, therefore, less likely to spring to mind. The aim of this study is, firstly, to develop a system of political risk analysis which is particularly applicable to the less developed or Third World countries, and secondly, to show that Angola and Mozambique do have investment potential. The object patently, is not as ambitious as to suggest answers to the problems of these two countries. en_US
