Chinese investors will spend US$700 million to build a cement plant with a nominal capacity of 500,000 tonnes in Mozambique, with work expected to start in 2021, daily newspaper Correio da Manhã reported.

The newspaper said that the Cimentos de Sofala, Lda. plant is due to be built in Muxúnguè, Chibabava district, in the south of the Mozambican central province of Sofala, and the works will begin in the third quarter of 2019.
