July 10, 2014 is a big day for Mozambique, and also a day worth celebrating and commemorating for AFECC, because the groundbreaking ceremony for N6 road rehabilitation project was held that day. N6 road is one of the three trunk roads most important in Mozambique and N6 road rehabilitation project is long-awaited by local people and AFECC, the contractor of the project.

 

It was a sunny day. The groundbreaking ceremony site was decorated with colored flags and reechoed with the sound of gongs and drums, all these created a heated atmosphere.  AFECC’s main leaders in Mozambique and staff in Beira as well as a large number of Mozambican people nearby, approximately 20, 000, gathered at the site in early morning. All AFECC staff, in red AFECC uniform and helmet, lining up orderly, together with local people, were greeting for the coming of President Guebuza. People on site were excited, jumping, cheering and performing a variety of local traditional folk dance to celebrate the great day. Under the reflection of blue sky and white clouds, four flags (including AFECC flag and Chinese national flag) were fluttering in breeze, indicating a successful commencement of N6 road project.

 

With the rumbling sound of aircraft wings and warm cheers, the aircraft for Mozambican President Guebuza and 6 escort aircrafts slowly landed at the wide and flat lawn apron. Wang Lipei, Commercial Counselor of Chinese embassy to Mozambique, AFECC CEO Wang Hao, Governor of Sofala Province, Minister of Construction, ANE Director and some others stepped forward to meet the President.
