Mozambique: South Korea Supports Energy Projects

Maputo — The Korean International Cooperation agency (KOICA) sent a team to Mozambique this week to discuss the preliminary research for three energy projects valued at seven million US dollars.

According to a KOICA press release issued on Friday, the research is being undertaken at the request of Mozambique's publicly-owned electricity company, EDM.

One project involves the installation of two interconnection lines - one from Maputo to Belavista and Salamanga in the southernmost district of Matutuine.

The other will run from Chibabava in Sofala province southwards to Vilankulo and Massinga in Inhambane province. KOICA says the viability of this project has been established, and the Korean agency hopes to implement it later this year.

The other two projects are the construction of an electricity training centre, and an intervention aimed at reducing power cuts throughout the country.

KOICA says it is also expanding its projects in education, agriculture and infrastructures, and envisages an increase in the volume of Korean aid to Mozambique.
