Mozambique calls for increase in sugar production

Mozambique needs urgently to increase its sugar production in order to meet increasing international demand for the product, the country’s Industry and Trade minister, António Fernando said. Without giving figures, Fernando said that demand for Mozambican sugar was greater and that several countries such as Egypt, the Seychelles and Indonesia, had formally shown interest in buying “enormous” amounts of the product, according to the minister. Currently the sugar produced in Mozambique is sold to the domestic market and exported to the European Union, as part of the ACP/EU “Everything But Arms” Initiative. Overall sugar production in Mozambique is likely to reach 500,000 tonnes in 2009 according to projections from the Tongaat-Hulett group which, in partnership with the Government, is carrying out a project to expand its activities in Xinavane, in Maputo province, and Mafambisse, in Sofala.
