Speaking to journalists  in the end of a visit by the minister of Transport, Ricardo de Abreu, to the province of Bengo, the secretary of State explained that currently around 80 to 90 percent of international trade is done by sea, hence the importance of these infra -structures.

 

He stressed that the Barra do Dande Ocean Terminal, which is still in a very preliminary phase, is an anchor project for the region and the ministry intends to see what synergies can be generated and that can benefit industry, agriculture and other complementary areas that may subsequently be leveraged with that project.

 

On the other hand, he said that the minister's visit focused on some projects that are being developed that need due monitoring and evaluation on the ground.

 

 

Regarding public transport, the Secretary of State considers it necessary to create solutions that are integrated and that go through an articulation between the Provincial Government of Bengo and the central government.

 

In turn, the deputy governor of Bengo for technical services and infrastructures, Agostinho da Silva, said that if some programmes like the construction of some municipal terminals to support the free movement of people and goods, construction of a railway branch be effectively implemented, this will bring development to the province.
