Iron Factory to open in Red Sea State

The Minister of Minerals, Kamal Abdul-Latif, announced that the inauguration of the Chinese Iron concentration Factory in the Red Sea State would be next Wednesday {September 18, 2013}. In a statement to SUNA, Abdul-Latif said that the factory is considered part of the Chinese Companies' contribution to development of the minerals sector in Sudan.

He noted that the factory operates in concentrating iron and raising its quality for preparing for international competition, affirming his ministry endeavor to develop the production of all minerals in Sudan, top of them are chrome and copper.

Questions that readily arise include: Will local people get any jobs? Where exactly is this located? What return comes to Sudan? - presumably China gets the pig iron?
