Mesquita told journalists on Thursday that two public tenders related with the airport are to be launched, one in China and one in Mozambique.

“The Chinese tender will select a contractor to build the runway while the tender in Mozambique will identify companies to build access roads and install the services to support the airport’s activities,” Mesquita said.
