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.
