For the ore reception, the directorate of the Benguela Railway has already sent trains loaded with containers to pack and transport the manganese to Port of Lobito on the 20th for further commercialization.

This loading takes place after the conformation of the branch of the CFB to the cross-border rail bridge over Luau.

The CFB (Angola) and the National Society of the Congo Railways (SNCC) had to work to adjust the railway extensions because they were out of adjustment.

The provincial deputy governor for the political, social and economic affairs, Carlos Alberto Masseca, told Angop, by the way, that with the reopening of rail links between the CFB and CFC, conditions are being created to transform the province of Moxico in a large logistic warehouse.
