A 90 metric ton fishmeal capacity factory was inaugurated recently in Tômbwa Municipality, south-western Namibe Province, by the Fisheries minister, Vitoria de Barros Neto.
The new plant will initially employ 150 new workers, particularly young people.
The minister remarked that Namibe Province has the capacity to develop other seafood activities, including the capture of mussels and shrimps, sea products that are much sought after on domestic and export markets.
“In this context the Executive has taken important measures aimed at improving the business activities linked to the fisheries sector (…)”, she explained.
To this end, the Executive has approved a new Private Investment Law to help entrepreneurs in the fishing sector and the Minister appealed to companies to take advantage of the opportunities by developing sustainable projects.
