News: Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA), a division of South Africa's state-owned transport company Transnet, is likely to tender for dredging work at Mozambique's Maputo Port, according to TNPA CEO Tau Morwe. TNPA and the Maputo Port Development Company signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to make way for strengthening cooperation between South Africa and Mozambique. The port's master plan is aimed at reaching a handling capacity of 50mn tonnes by 2050. Meanwhile, Morwe accepted that cargo traffic in South Africa's Mpumalanga and Gauteng provinces may fall owing to development at the Maputo Port. The MoU intends to build regional cooperation among the ports, with cooperation with other regional ports being set up, including the Mozambican Port of Beira and the Kenyan Port of Mombasa.
