A factory in the Chokué Agro-Industrial Complex, in Mozambique’s Gaza province, is due Monday to be inaugurated by President Filipe Jacinto Nyusi, the Mozambican state shareholding management office, Igepe, said in a statement.

The Chokué Agro-Industrial Complex is a project expected to cost US$60 million, financed with a loan from the Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im) of China.

The main aim is to find a solution to the cyclical problems of agricultural production that has been lost over successive seasons both in Chokué and nearby (Limpopo Valley) affecting the efforts of the farmers involved.

The new factory, in addition to processing rice, cashew nuts and tomatoes, will have capacity to store more than 30,000 tons of agricultural products. (macauhub/MZ)
