This Thursday morning (26), the Prime Minister of the Republic of Mozambique reopened the Recreation Center of the Banco de Moçambique (CRBM) in Beira city, following its rehabilitation and modernization, spurred by the damages caused by Cyclone Idai. 

In his speech, Adriano Maleiane said that the decision to build the CRBM was taken about 20 years ago. At the time, there was already an understanding of the importance of having a physical space where workers and common citizens could practice sports and socialize in their spare time.

In addition, Adriano Maleiane expressed his great satisfaction at seeing a Center, which he conceived when he was still Governor of the Banco de Moçambique, now rehabilitated to provide greater quality services to users.

Finally, the Prime Minister praised the bank's corporate responsibility, noting that the construction of social infrastructure plays an important role in creating opportunities for disadvantaged social classes, while promoting greater bank penetration in communities.

For his part, the Governor of the Banco de Moçambique stated that the rehabilitation of the infrastructure aimed at adapting to current architectural and engineering dynamics, which simultaneously add modernism, comfort and resilience to the climatic events that cyclically plague our country, and particularly Beira city.


Rogério Zandamela highlighted the historical and sentimental symbolism that the presence of the Prime Minister conferred on the event, and expressed gratitude for the dedication and selfless work of all those who directly or indirectly made it possible to materialize the rehabilitation and modernization of the Center.

The Center covers about four thousand square meters and includes integrated and multifunctional services, administrative blocks, a sports complex, a sound room, a gym, a restaurant with terrace, a pool, among other elements that provide various options to users. 


The event was attended by the State Secretary of the Sofala Province, Cecília Chamutota, the Provincial Governor, Lourenço Bulha, the Chairman of the Beira City Council, Albano António, and BM Board Members, Jamal Omar and Silvina de Abreu, among other institution managers and staff members.
