Japanese civil society groups believe that the cancellation of Nitori's plans is partly due to the opposition to the ProSavana project that the Japanese government is promoting for the Nacala Corridor.

Japan’s Nitori postpones construction of textile complex in Mozambique

clubofmozambique (2014-07-21) Japanese company Nitori announced the postponement of construction of a textile complex, with units for spinning, weaving and clothes manufacturing in the city of Nacala-Porto, in Mozambique’s Nampula province, according to Friday’s edition of Mozambican daily newspaper Notícias.

The newspaper said that “the postponement is, apparently, related to a lack of security in some areas of Sofala province.”

The project also included opening a cotton-based raw materials production centre, in Malema district, on a 4,000-hectare plot, a seed-cotton processing factory and a textile complex in Nacala-Porto.

Nitori planned to produce an average of 16,000 tons of cotton per harvest for manufacturing a variety of clothes that would then be sold on the European and American markets.
