19 November 2010

Maputo, Mozambique, 19 Nov – The Kingho group, a large Chinese company specialised in coal production and chemical products planning to invest in a coal mine in Mozambique, is recruiting staff before launching its operations.

The Kingho group, Macauhub has learned in Maputo, plans to recruit Portuguese and English translators with solid knowledge of Chinese, and other languages.

Recently the group announced it had set up an education fund worth US$1 million to fund 100 scholarships each year for bachelor’s degrees and post-graduate courses in the sciences, specifically mining engineering, at Chinese universities.

The agreement signed in Maputo for the creation of the education fund set out the conditions for applying for the scholarships and creation of a commission to manage them between the Chinese and Mozambican authorities.

In order to make up for a lack of human resources in Mozambique, the Chinese group plans to train its own staff, the first step of which was signing the agreement to set up an educational fund. (macauhub)
