In December, we blogged about the USD 1 billion investment by the Brazilian mining company, Vale SA, the world’s largest iron-ore producer, in Malawi’s railway infrastructure. The project is set to link Mozambique’s coal producing region Tete to the Nacala port by railway, which will cut across the south of Malawi. Malawi is expected to receive USD 8 million per year in concession fees.

Nkhani Digest, a YouTube user, has made available a 6-minute “Malawi Railway Infrastructure Development Documentary, April 2013”, produced by the Malawi Broadcasting Corporation, the state run media company.

Mozambique is making strides in improving the transportation network to export coal (and improve transport for its citizens) from the country’s Tete province. The poor infrastructure influenced Rio Tinto’s write down of assets in January, but the company is now among the 6 final bidders for a rail and port project from Tete to Macuse in the Zambezia Province.
