The minister was speaking to Angop at Luanda's "4 de Fevereiro" International Airport, adding that the two-day work is part of seminars aimed at assessing activity conducted in the sector.

The event will analyse the gains, losses, advantages, disadvantages and the progress of the companies in terms of business management.

Like in northern Cabinda province, the activity will cover the provinces of Luanda, Namibe, Huíla and Zaire.

Analysis will focus on financial, technical, operational, human resources, organisation and management aspects as well as all investments made from 2007 to 2017, he added.

The agenda includes delivery of buses to urban, inter-municipal and inter-communal public transport companies, as well as visit to the local projects of the sector.

Last Friday in northern Cabinda province, Augusto da Silva Tomás announced that a study was under way to reduce air fares, port charges and sea freight, in order to ensure greater mobility of people and goods.
