MOZAMBIQUE: Garment factory planned for Manica province
A garment factory that will manufacture shirts and trousers is to be built in Mozambique's Manica province.
The facility, located in the city of Chimoio, is expected to be operational by the middle of next year.
It will employ around 300 workers and will have the capacity to produce around 8,000 woollen blankets per month, in addition to shirts, trousers and other items of clothing.
The factory will initially import wool, but according to the provincial director for industry and trade, Acacio Foia, owners will offer financial incentives and lambs to local farmers to stimulate wool production.
