MAPUTO (Reuters) – Mozambique’s economic growth quickened to 3.7 percent in the third quarter of 2016 compared to a revised 3.4 percent in the second quarter, the National Statistics Institute said on Monday.

The southern African nation’s economy is in the midst of a crisis after the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other global lenders cancelled funding after the emergence of more than $2 billion in loans that were not approved by parliament.
