This is a bet on the use of wood, one of the riches of the region, said Governor Gonçalves Muandumba to the press on Thursday at the end of the meeting of the Economic Commission of the Council of Ministers that took place in the city of Dundo, Lunda North.

On the exploitation of wood in Moxico, the governor believes that it must be done in a sustainable way and accompanied by the creation of jobs.

Along with Gonçalves Muandumba, the governors of Lunda Sul, Ernesto Kiteculo, and the host Ernesto Muangala also participated in the meeting.
