This was said Saturday  in Benguela by the ruling party’s presidential candidate, João Lourenço, during a public rally meant for his presentation to MPLA militants, sympathisers and friends.

João Lourenço on the occasion recalled nationals that the country once relied on fabric manufactured by the Benguela-based “Africa Textil” factory.

According to him, the foreign exchange currently used to import items should be used on those the country has no technological ability to manufacture locally.

He stated that importing disrupts the State’s coffers and creates no jobs.

João Lourenço stated as well that the national economy could only get revitalised once if there was a trade of goods among the various regions of the country.

To him, in this regard Benguela province could contribute with the four transport infrastructures it possesses, namely the Lobito Port, the Benguela Railway, the National Road that links the north to the south of the country and the Catumbela Airport.

The ruling party presidential candidate said Benguela could become the country’s major logistic hub.
