Therefore, with the entry into operation of the multipurpose terminal, the Port of Lobito will no longer handle loading and unloading of containers, according to Rádio Nacional de Angola (RNA).

According to Sebastião Faria, commercial director of the consortium, approximately 200 million dollars were invested by the company, with a view to developing actions that contribute to the growth of "business volume in the provinces and regions of Angolan territory and also developing logistical solutions " for the Lobito Corridor and the Copperbelt region.

"We think that the Port of Lobito is part of our strategy to increase connection and connectivity between Africa, also develop business volume in the provinces and regions of Angolan territory and also develop logistical solutions through the Corridor, also for the Copperbelt. It is an investment of 200 million dollars", he stated, quoted by RNA.

He also added that the project also provides for training, aimed at developing skills: "Developing human skills, we will pass on know-how to the population and all technical skills through a vast and broad training plan. It is also part of the local content, the development of our local suppliers through these skills. And we ourselves want to accompany this development and also accompany the challenge in Angola with the demographic increase of the population and allow us to transmit all the know-how of our company".

Regarding results, he said they expect "an increase" of around 50 percent. "In terms of results, we expect an increase of 50 percent, but our vision is to have the Port of Lobito as a strategic transshipment platform for minerals, including those from Angola, and the development of the agricultural and livestock industry along the Corridor ", he indicated, quoted by Angop.
