17 June 2019

The Chinese government has donated 100 new buses for urban passenger transport in Mozambique.

The 40-seat Zhong Tong brand buses were delivered at a public ceremony attended by President Filipe Nyusi and China’s ambassador to Mozambique’s Su Jian, the Xinhua news agency reported.

The Chinese diplomat said during the ceremony that each bus comes equipped with accessories and parts for repair, if necessary.

The delivery of the 100 buses is part of “Plano 1000” in which the government plans to place 1,000 public transport vehicles in Mozambique over the next five years.

The President of the Republic said when the plan was launched that the Government had already achieved more than 80% of its goal to place buses in Mozambique.

Of the 100 buses 65 will be distributed throughout the municipalities of Maputo, Matola, Boane and the district of Marracuene and 35 will be placed in the provinces. (Macauhub)
