1300 farmers in Mozambique will benefit from a training financed by the EU

Almost 1300 farmers from Xinaveane, the first sugar producer in Mozambique and based in Maputo, are to benefit from a training about the use of fertilizers and of new equipments in cultivation and marketing, supported by the  European Union.

It has been made possible by Rosario Cumbe, the general director of the sugar company Xinavane and the president of the National Association of Sugar Producers. Cumbe explained that the training will be part of a fund totaling 6 million EUR, given to Mozambique by the European Union and intended for the maintenance of the sugar sector. Cumbe added that Mozambique, among other ACP countries, is waiting for the payment of the second budget half which is supposed to be disbursed by October to continue the reform of the sugar sector.

The main share of Mozambique’s sugar production is exported to Europe in the framework of an agreement between the EU and the ACP group.
