The protocol aims to monetize the enterprises, which until then were in a state of abandonment and vandalized by unknown individuals.

Based on this new management framework, the remaining 40 ships will be delivered to local entrepreneurs.

The protocol, which also aims to stimulate the chicken production chain, especially cutting, was signed in the municipality of Cacuso by the Secretary of State for Agriculture and Livestock, Carlos Alberto Jaime, and the head of the Agro- cattle raising of the General Staff of the Angolan Armed Forces, Brigadier Faria de Sousa.

At the time, Carlos Alberto Jaime said that the integration of the FAA and private entrepreneurs in this project is a dynamic strategy that already has an incubator and a large slaughterhouse, to contribute to the process of economic diversification and income generation.

To support the project, the official said that animal feed producers will also be involved.

He announced the launch in October of the Family Poultry Project, which will involve the delivery of chickens and chowders to the communities of Quizenga for the production of eggs and chickens, towards the integration of the residents in these activities.
