The assurance came from the minister of Territory Administration and State Reform, Adão de Almeida.

The minister announced that maritime passenger and cargo terminal will be available to support the Cabotage service.

According to him, the initiative will contribute to the movement of people and ease the flow of products to Cabinda and reduce prices.

Adão de Almeida was addressing a central event to mark the beginning of the National Liberation Struggle (February 4) held Monday in northern Cabinda province.

He recalled the special tariff regime as being already in force in the Cabinda province, which, according to him, allowed to increase the frequency of flights of the various companies operating in Cabinda.

On the other hand, the minister said the government will focus this year on the construction projects of Caio Port and that of the new Maria Mambo Café airport.

Adão de Almeida also recalled that Cabinda will have a refinery with a capacity to process 60,000 barrels a day, whose works start this year.

Land concession contracts have already been signed, said the minister who predicted the completion of Cabinda refinery before 2022.
