Mozambique: $1.26 bn deficit next year means $1 bn more debt - Hanlon
Mozambique on Wednesday took ownership of its first hydrographic vessel equipped with a multi-beam sounding system, which according to the Minister of Transport and Communications will place Mozambique at the forefront of hydrographic surveying.
At a cost to the state coffers of 34 million meticais (about US$565,000), it is the first vessel equipped with cutting-edge apparatus in this area. The acquisition of this vessel will reduce the time required to stay at sea, mapping.
The recently celebrated World Hydrography Day was marked under the motto “Mapping our oceans, seas and waterways: More important than ever”, and Mozambique’s geo-strategic location confers on it increased responsibility regarding the dynamism of regional and global shipping.
