The government official said so at the ceremony of launching the 6th edition of the International Fair of Environmental Technologies "Ambiente/Angola 2018".

She said that was an appeal for all entrepreneurs and traders to keep in mind the principles of sustainability for a better future, by guaranteeing the growth of businesses without putting at risk the equilibrium of the ecosystems.    

Thus, she deemed it imperative to have an economic growth that is based on ecological, economic and social pillars, further stressing that “the development of the country cannot be done at any price”.   

To the Environment minister, the holding of environmental technologies fairs is clearly intended to promote and encourage the application of clean technologies and good environmental practices in the productive processes.

ANGOP has learnt that about one hundred exhibitors will participate in the sixth edition of the "Ambiente/Angola 2018" fair, which is promoted by the Environment Ministry.

The event includes lectures and roundtable meetings that will analyse and discuss topics like “sanitation”, “renewable energies”, “recycling of residues”, among others.
