Angola to re-launch cotton production in Malanje
Angola’s ministry of agriculture and forestry is considering financing projects to re-launch cotton production in northern Malanje province. The ministry is in discussion with China and Japan to finance the projects for re-launching cotton as well as rice cultivation, according to secretary of state for Agriculture and Livestock, Carlos Alberto Jaime.

Cotton is being grown on around 10,000 hectares in a phased manner along the perimeter of Capanda Agro-industrial hub (PAC), located in the municipality of Cacuso, and in Baixa de Cassanje region, which comprises the municipalities of Cahombo, Quela and Cunda-dia-Base, Angolan news agency ANGOP reported.

The ministry is also considering reduction of costs of agricultural inputs so as to increase profits of farmers. (RKS)
