Mozambique's Transport and Communications Minister Carlos Mesquita has called for the Machipanda boarder post with neighboring Zimbabwe to be developed into a one-stop border post to build competitive advantages over other regional routes.

The official was quoted by state-controlled Radio Mozambique on Monday as saying that it has made an improvement in the flow of people crossing the border, which lies in the central province of Manica.

However, they are needed to accelerate the processing of people and goods.

"We know that truckers and business people are carrying money and other valuable goods, so there is a need to strengthen the security and the ability to get on board.

"We can not allow lines of miles long to build up, putting people's lives at risk. "Mesquita said," such as a dry port, in order to get things moving.

In January last year, the customs authorities of Mozambique and Zimbabwe are in the process of dealing with the problem.

Machipanda marks the beginning of the Beira Corridor which links Zimbabwe with the international port at Beira on the Indian Ocean.

Machipanda is also the main gateway for African countries that use the Mozambican port of Beira in the Indian Ocean.

Over 800 people and 300 trucks cross the frontier every day.
