United Arab Emirates Port Companies Interested to Invest in Nacala Port

The Mozambican government is evaluating proposals submitted by port companies from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that intend to invest in the Port of Nacala, in Nampula province.

This information was shared by the President of the Republic, Filipe Nyusi, on Tuesday, 17 January, at a press conference to take stock of his working visit to the UAE since Sunday, 15 January, at the invitation of his counterpart, Shaikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

Filipe Nyusi said that the port of Nacala offers numerous advantages due to its characteristics and location, adding that it is now undergoing total rehabilitation.

“The port of Nacala will change and will be one of the most modern that we will have in Southern Africa. A deep water port is naturally a desirable port. As such, a proposal has already been presented [by UAE port companies], but the Ministry of Transport and Communications is evaluating it because it is not the only one,” informed the President.

The head of state also revealed that there are airlines from the United Arab Emirates that have shown interest in operating in Mozambique.

Filipe Nyusi made a positive assessment of his visit to the Middle Eastern country, noting that it allowed for the continuation of proposals for cooperation presented on the last presidential trip to that country in October 2022.

During his stay in the UAE, the President of the Republic took part in the opening ceremony of Sustainability Week, an international business event on the promotion of clean energy, which annually brings together about 4,000 dignitaries from around the world, and met with his counterparts from Angola, Uganda and the host country, with whom he discussed issues related to deepening bilateral cooperation.
