Holland Finances Dredging Projects in Beira Port

The Dutch government and the publicly owned Mozambican Ports and Railways company (CFM) are investing 18 million US dollars in two emergency dredging projects for the access channel and the manoeuvering basins in the central port of Beira.

The chairperson of the CFM board of directors, Rui Fonseca, cited in Monday’s issue of the Maputo daily ‘Noticias’, said that the dredging of the access channel will allow large ships uninterrupted access to the port.
