Zambia reaffirms intention to export ores through CFB

The intention was reaffirmed, this Wednesday, by Kapelwa Mbangweta, minister (governor) of the Western province of Zambia. According to the official, Zambia is still interested in exporting minerals through the Benguela Railway (CFB).


The official reiterated this after having visited the Luau border post, which connects to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), having also noted the existence of an "urgent" need to build the railway branch linking Luacano, in Angola, to Jimbe, in Zambia, in an extension of 300 kilometres, writes Angop.

He also considered, cited by Angop, that the connection of his country's railroad to the CFB will reduce expenses with the export of ores outside the African continent.

In turn, Victor da Silva, vice-governor for the Political, Social and Economic sector of Moxico, took the opportunity to recall that connecting the country's railway line to Zambia is an infrastructure initiative of major importance economy and politics of Southern Africa, writes Angop.

He also considered that the connection between both countries will increase commercial and economic activity and will also favor the business community in the transport of goods, along with attracting investments and equipment to encourage the country's economic development. "This will be an important step towards economic integration at the level of Southern Africa, which will allow the country to quickly reach the level of development", he said, quoted by Angop.

It should be noted that Kapelwa Mbangweta traveled aboard a CFB train to the municipality of Luau (Moxico), with a view to identifying potential sectors of collaboration within the scope of a cooperation agreement between both areas.
