Tete province has registered a 47% growth in the production of mineral coal exported to foreign markets.
This is the thermal and metallurgical coal produced in the Moatize and Marara coalfields by the multinationals VULCAN, ICVL and Jindal Africa.
The information was shared this Friday morning by the Director of the Provincial Infrastructure Services of Tete, Grácio Cune, in Rádio Moçambique’s Café da Manhã programme.

The growth in production has contributed to an increase in the number of permanent jobs.
“This shows our commitment to preserving jobs and keeping the mines in operation. Our challenge will be to increase and recover our production and commercialization over time,” Grácio Cune said.
