The collaboration was announced by Administrator Mark Green at the 2019
Corporate Council on U.S.-Africa Business Summit.

"This effort will leverage the combined expertise and capabilities of
USAID and ExxonMobil to implement sustainable programs that lead to
improved quality of life," said Liam Mallon, president of ExxonMobil
Upstream Oil & Gas Company.

USAID will apply its experience and strong expertise to promote
stability, governance and development initiatives tailored to help
community needs. USAID is committed to deepening collaboration with the
private sector in areas ranging from economic growth, energy,
agriculture and global health to humanitarian assistance, women's
empowerment and education.

Since 2018, ExxonMobil has invested more than $3 million in community
programs that promote improved education, health care, family
empowerment, agriculture and biodiversity conservation across
Mozambique. These contributions include more than $400,000 in emergency
assistance efforts in response to cyclones Idai and Kenneth.

ExxonMobil holds a 25 percent indirect interest in Mozambique Area 4
concession and will lead the construction and operation of the future
onshore natural gas liquefaction facilities in Cabo Delgado's Agfungi
peninsula. In addition, ExxonMobil holds joint rights to operate the
Angoche basin (A5-B) and the Zambezi Delta (Z5-C and Z5-D) concessions.
