The new facility would be capacitated to process hundreds of tons of cotton each day, Provincial Director for Industry, Geology and Mining, Luís Monteiro said during a visit of the Provincial Governor, Norberto dos Santos to the former factory of Cotton Oil Uphoka.
 
Prior to launching the construction work of the new facility, the Industrial Development Institute of Angola is carrying out research on the same, Angolan press agency ANGOP reported.
 
Angolan Government is investing more and more to develop cotton production and processing in the provinces of Malanje and Kwanza Sul, so as to give a boost to the country’s textile industry.
 
It was in 1947 that cotton production was first introduced in Malanje province, as the General Company for Cotton Angola, the Portuguese-Belgian firm, formed in 1926, obtained a grant to launch cotton production on an area of around 80,000 sq km in east and west of Malanje.
