The Angolan statesman was speaking at a meeting with young representatives of the six municipalities of Zaire province as part of a two-day working visit to that region.

During the meeting, which addressed social, economic and political issues about the country and, in particular, the province of Zaire, João Lourenço stressed that he counts on the participation of young people towards the country's development.

"I look at the Angolan youth with great attention, because in the most difficult moments of the History of Angola they were the one who made the greatest contribution," said the Head of State, referring to the commitment of the young people in the struggle for national liberation and the conquest of Independence achieved in November 1975.

Creation of jobs

As for unemployment, which affects a large part of the youth, the statesman said that the solution also goes through the initiatives of young people, despite the responsibilities that the state has in creating more jobs.

It was in this wake that he called on young people to be prepared to serve Angola, wherever they are called or where there is employment.

Visit to the Angola LNG gas plant

During the visit to Soyo, President João Lourenço noted the functioning of the LNG liquefied gas plant, built to avoid the burning of natural gas produced in the different oil blocks of the Angolan offshore.
