Chinese businessmen are interested in using the Benguela railway to move goods from the interior of Angola and neighboring countries to international markets, the Chinese ambassador to Angola said Tuesday at Lobito.

The Angop news agency, citing the declarations of Ambassador Gong Tao, mentions as companies interested in this process the China Harbor Engineering Corporation, responsible for the re-qualification of the port of Lobito in 2013, COSCO and Sinotrans, focused on logistics, especially in maritime and rail transport.

The ambassador added that the commodities and raw materials produced both in the interior of Angola and in neighboring countries without access to the sea, such as the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia, can use this corridor of the Benguela railway and the port of Lobito to reach foreign markets, including China.
