Tete province in Mozambique to receive US$60 million in investments

4 January 2012

Tete, Mozambique, 4 Jan – Mozambique’s Tete province is this year set to benefit from investment projects that have already been approved worth a total of US$60 million, said Prime Minister Aires Ali at the start of a four-day visit to the province.

“In 2011 new projects were approved representing a joint investment of US$60 million,” said Ali adding that other projects for the province were still being evaluated.

The Prime Minister noted that had recently received training institutions, specifically higher education facilities and universities, and added that this meant these institutions had to be able to train the human resources needed to drive the country’s development, particularly in Tete.

On this trip, Aires Ali is due to travel to the districts of Moatize and Cahora Bassa, along with others, to visit the facilities of Brazilian mining company Vale and the Cahora Bassa Hydroelectric dam. (macauhub)
