The Beira fishing port in Mozambique’s Sofala province will soon move from State control to private ownership in order to elevate its production results.
The facility, which has recently been rebuilt after the cyclone Eline in 2002, will soon become a subject for competitive bidding.
According to the reports, the companies from Spain, China and Mauritius have already expressed interest in buying the port farseeing great potential in it.
“The idea behind the launch of an international public tender is to ensure the profitability, efficiency and productivity of the fishing port through a public-private partnership,” director of the port’s management company Carlos Calenga explained.
Today, the port can offer a 377-metre-long pier, six cold storage rooms as well as an ice factory and a fish processing line.
