The owners of the company Cimento Nacional Lda., located in the Beluluane Industrial Park (PIB), Boane district, Maputo province, closed their doors and abandoned the industry at a time in that the sector is recent from the strong competition imposed by Mozambique Dugongo, which recently opened to the market with very low prices compared to the previous ones. Television Mozambique (TVM), which advanced the matter a few days ago, said that the company’s owners had left close to 300 workers unemployed. “Letter” contacted the Directorate of the Beluluane Industrial Park and the Association of Cement Producers in Mozambique to find out more details on the matter, but, until the end of this article, those responsible for these institutions were not available. The Director of Industry, at the Ministry of Industry and Commerce (MIC), Sidónio Dos Santos, said he had not received official information about the closure and abandonment of the owners of Cimento Nacional Lda. He said that he had also been informed by the media. Meanwhile, Dos Santos promised to meet with the newspaper on the coming Wednesday to provide more information on the matter. It is not certain whether the closure of that plant has to do with the strong competition perpetrated by Moçambique Dugongo, which, after its entry into operation, influenced the slippage in the price of cement in the market. This fact aroused revolt on the part of former cement producers in the country, allegedly, because the company is engaging in unfair competition. To reverse the scenario, the companies sent a letter to the Minister of Industry and Commerce, Carlos Mesquita, to broker the deal, but has not yet commented. Furthermore, cement, which cost 750 Meticais (in speculation schemes), currently costs an average of 300 Meticais. (Evaristo Chilingue) Source: Carta de Moçambique
