This was announced to ANGOP last Thursday in Lubango City, southern Huila Province, by the incumbent minister, João Ernesto dos Santos, following the delivery of agricultural tools to a local association.

The minister, who did not disclose the kind of support the associations and cooperatives will have, said the beneficiaries will attend in the first place a resources’ management seminar, so as to enable them to contribute to the country’s economy diversification.

 In the meantime, added the official, the National Development Plan 2018/2022 embodies the creation of conditions to improve the quality of life of the assisted people.

The minster also urged provincial governors to create strategies to aid former combatants, ex-military people living with disability, orphans and widows so as to prevent them from begging in the streets.
