Nyusi calls for business partnerships with US companies - Watch
Two companies interested in building a railway line connecting the north and south of the country, an old government project, have already been identified, and feasibility studies will be presented later this year.
Speaking at the fifth Mozambique Engineering Congress in Maputo, Minister of Transport and Communications Carlos Mesquita did not name the companies, and said that details on the start of construction and costs would only be known when the feasibility studies were published.
As for the challenges facing Mozambique in the engineering sector, Minister Mesquita said that there was still much to be done in all areas of transport, from rail to sea, and in oil exploration.
Ibraimo Remane, chairman of the Order of Engineers of Mozambique, said there were training challenges associated with these needs, and that many candidates in Mozambique obtained engineering degrees without meeting the minimum requirements to practice the profession.
The fifth Engineering Congress of Mozambique take places from September 4 to 6 and coincides with the Eighth Luso-Mozambican Engineering Congress.Source: O País
