Japan finances Nacala port development
 
Maputo, 5 Mar (AIM) – The Mozambican and Japanese governments signed an agreement in Maputo on Monday, under which Japan will provide a loan of 889 million yen (84 million US dollars) for the first phase of the development project for the northern Mozambican port of Nacala.

The agreement was signed by Mozambique’s Deputy Foreign Minister, Eduardo Koloma, and by Japanese ambassador Eiji Hashimoto.

The first phase includes dredging the north quay, and expanding and paving the container terminal.  This is intended to raise the capacity of the terminal from the current 89,000 to 240,000 containers a year.

The project should also lead to an increase in the number of ships calling at Nacala from the current 75 a year to about 180 a year.

Speaking at the ceremony, Koloma said that improving Nacala port is one of the government’s major priorities. He hoped that the Mozambican authorities would be able to count on continuing Japanese support, not only for port infrastructures, education and health, but also for the prevention and management of natural disasters.

For his part, Hashimoto said that the development of the port will contribute towards accelerating Mozambique’s development, and will facilitate the trade of landlocked countries such as Malawi and Zambia.
