Indian funding for Moz railway equipment acquisition
10 Jan 2019 - by
India’s Exports and Import Bank (ExIm) has opened a credit line of US$95 million for Mozambique to acquire railway equipment under an agreement recently signed in Maputo.
A bank spokesperson said in a statement that this would enable the Mozambican government to acquire rolling stock, such as locomotives, passenger cars and wagons of various types.
The new agreement marks the thirteenth financing grant by the Indian bank. The credit lines opened to Mozambique are aimed at financing projects such as rural electrification, increasing agricultural productivity, building solar panels, rebuilding roads and building 900 houses.
