ANGOP learnt that according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Forest coffee development subprogramme the project is expected to cost 27.8 million kwanzas.  

In order for this goal to be achieved, the sector will carry out several actions such as the institutional reinforcement, technical assistance and the rehabilitation of 12,600 hectares of land in traditional zones of the country.

The project forecasts 14,000 tons of coffee output until 2027, with expected progressive increases in the following years.

Angola records an annual coffee production of 7,000 tons, which is far beyond recovering the former 240,000 tons recorded in 1972.

The coffee subprogramme is due to be implemented in the provinces of Cuanza Norte, Cabinda, Uíge, Bengo  Cuanza Sul, Benguela, Huíla, Huambo, Bié and  Malanje.
