ANGOP has learnt that one of the objectives of this measure is to make the state stop spending about USD 245 million with the importation of fish.    

According to the chairman of AIA, José Severino, the referred committee can be co-ordinated by the Presidency of the Republic and the Trade Ministry.

He said the committee could help to facilitate the circulation of goods internally.

José Severino was speaking at the forum that served to hear the opinions of entrepreneurs in relation to the trade sector, in the ambit of the Programme of Support to Production, Promotion of Exports and Replacement of Imports (Prodesi), which is being co-ordinated by the Ministry of Economy and Planning.

A few other proposals were made at the meeting attended by over 200 entrepreneurs and which also had the objective to divulge the main actions in the pipeline for the trade sector.

ANGOP has learnt that the Executive intends to adopt Prodesi as an instrument for co-ordinating and boosting local production.
