Manuel Tavares de Almeida announced this to the press at the end of the 2nd Ordinary Session of the Local Governance Council (CGL), held in central Huambo province, under the President João Lourenço.

The meeting discussed, among other matters, the five-year road programme, which foresees the improvement of 4000 kilometers of secondary roads and 4000 of tertiary roads.

He explained that this initiative arose from the need for greater interaction between the sector he leads and the provincial governments, within the framework of participatory governance.

The Local Governance Council discussed various issues related to the management of the provinces and the improvement of the people’s living conditions.
