Mozambique: Government approves four decentralisation regulations
The foundation stone for the construction of the resettlement village in the Port of Macuse expansion programme in Sopinho, Quelimane district, Zambezia, in central Mozambique, has just been laid [on September 27], AIM reports.
The Port of Macuse infrastructure development includes a rail link to Chitima, in Mozambique’s central Tete province.
Speaking on the occasion, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Thai Mozambique Logistics, Orlando Marques said that a total of 63 homes would be built, plus a health centre, a water supply system and power grid extension, roads, boreholes and a market and playgrounds.
According to Marques, quoted by Notícias on Tuesday, total resettlement costs will only be known after the construction of the model house, a process due to start within days.
The chairman of the Thai Mozambique Logistics Board of Directors said that resettlement would be implemented over a period of two years, during the course of which all the promised infrastructures would be completed and handed over to families.
The impending Port of Macuse and railway construction works are valued at US$3.2 million, and could employ more than 2,000 workers during the execution phase.
Meanwhile, Zambézia provincial governor, Abdul Razak, asked Thai Mozambique Logistics and local communities to prioritise sincere dialogue to resolve any divergences which might occur during the resettlement process.
Governor Razak said the provincial government and people of Zambezia were looking forward to the boom which the port and railway development was expected to bring to the economy of the province.Source: AIM Moçambique
