The Port of Beira in Sofala province expects to handle 12 million metric tons of merchandise this year for Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi and the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique’s hinterland countries.
Goods transited included fertilisers, agricultural products and liquid fuels, Minister of Transport and Communications Carlos Mesquita noted yesterday in Beira when speaking to reporters after landing at Beira International Airport to attend the meeting of SADC transport ministers responsible for the Beira and North-South corridors.
Radio Mozambique quotes Minister Mesquita as saying that he would evaluate investments at the Port of Beira, and that some agreements aimed at boosting development in the region would be signed.
