The management team for the implementation of the Economic Acceleration Package (EAP), accompanied by representatives from the Ministries of Mineral Resources and Energy (MIREME), Agriculture and Rural Development (MADER) and Industry and Commerce (MIC), held a multi-sectoral meeting on biofuels today.
According to a shared note, the meeting aimed to collect contributions for the design of the implementation plan of measure 10 of the SAP, which advocates the introduction of a mandatory blend of imported fuels with biofuels.
The agenda discussed also included the methodology to be adopted to ensure the implementation of the measures, the presentation of the preliminary proposal of the decree that regulates biofuels and their blends, the production of raw materials and the implementation of storage infrastructures, among other points.
“The meeting served as a positive starting point for the private sector, as it promoted an open dialogue between the sectors and the actors responsible for the development and implementation of the measure,” the note advanced.
The meeting was also attended by representatives of ENI, TotalEnergies, Petromoc, Açucareira de Xinavane, Illovo Sugar and Tongaat Hulett and EcoFarm, amongst other entities.
The EAP was announced in August last year by the Mozambican President, Filipe Nyusi.
