Cuanza Norte: Official defends more financial incentive for coffee producers
The appeal was launched Monday by the head of Provincial Department of National Coffee Institute (Inca) in Cuanza Norte province, Costa Neto.
Casta Neto was speaking to Angop in the framework of his visit to Ambaca Municipality.
He regretted the plight experienced by the coffee producers in the region.
The difficulties include those related to access to bank credit and other incentives that increase levels of production.
According to him, this reality impacts negatively the annual production levels.
"We need access to financing for coffee farmers, especially for hiring of work force and the acquisition of agricultural means," he said.
He defended the promotion of concrete and urgent policies for the sector in order to attract young people to coffee, to ensure the country's economic balance.
Cuanza Norte province recorded a decrease in harvest of 600 tons in 2017, compared to 950 produced in 2016.
