16 May 2017

An economic feasibility study for the production of cotton in Angola’s Malange province is being carried out by Japan as part of its cooperation with Angola, the Japanese ambassador in Angola, Hironori Sawada, said on Monday in the city of Malange.

The ambassador told Angolan news agency Angop at the end of an audience with the governor of Malange, Norberto dos Santos, that the project, details of which he did not disclose, was underway, with the respective costs being paid by the Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA).

Sawada pointed out that the province of Malange is very rich in land, water and mineral resources, and the intention is to take advantage of this potential for production of cotton and other initiatives.

Angola has been benefiting from agriculture, education, health, infrastructure, energy and landmine clearance projects in several provinces, paid for by JICA. (macauhub)
