Swazi Cabinet Approves US$3 Billion Port Project
BY KWANELE DHLADHLA AND SIFISO SIBANDZE
MBABANE – Presumably, most people do not believe that the E30 billion sea port project, bringing about 10 000 jobs, is something that will see the light of day, but Cabinet believes in it and has since approved and pledged 100 per cent support to it.
This was confirmed by Minister of Commerce, Industry and Trade Gideon Dlamini in an interview yesterday. “At government level, we are fully behind the project and we are giving it undivided support. The project owners had done presentations to Cabinet and we interrogated it and found that it is a wonderful one. Following Cabinet’s realisation that the project is good and viable, Prime Minister Sibusiso Dlamini then tasked the different concerned ministries to start working together with the project owners straight away,” Dlamini said.
