Chinese-owned Dugongo Cimentos is planning to build a new cement plant in Mozambique at an estimated cost of around US$192 million, Portuguese-language news outlet e-Global reports.

After a meeting with local authorities, company representatives said that the factory – to be located in the city of Nacala-Porto, Nampula province – would be able to produce about 6,000 tons of cement per day.

Project coordinator Issufo Ali said the project will generate jobs for more than 600 people.

Secretary of state, Jaime Neto, said that all necessary support would be provided for the construction of the factory. 

Dugongo Cimentos currently operates a factory in Maputo province, which can produce about 2,500 tons of cement per day. The Matutuine cement clinker plant was opened in 2021 at a cost of US$330 million. 

The Mozambique construction market was valued at US$724.6 million in 2021 and is expected to achieve an average annual growth rate of more than 4% during the next three years.
