Mozambican state port and railway company CFM will manage the port of Quelimane, in the country’s central province of Zambézia, under a government decision, announced on Tuesday by the spokeswoman of the Council of Ministers and Deputy Minister of Culture and Tourism.

“The Council of Ministers considered and decided on the decree approving the early termination and by mutual agreement of the concession contract of the port of Quelimane and consequent return to the granting authority,” said Ana Comoana.

The deputy minister said that the decision aims to ensure the defence of the national interest and ensure continuous stimulus of socio-economic development of all users of the port of Quelimane, and of Zambézia province as a whole.

The management of the port of Quelimane was entrusted to a consortium led by Cornelder de Moçambique, a partnership between the Cornelder Holdings group based in the Netherlands and Mozambican port and rail company CFM.

Cornelder de Moçambique has also been managing the Beira port in Sofala province since October 1998. (macauhub)
