PIIM Implementation yields encouraging results

  • Manuel Nunes Junior, Ministro de Estado Para Coordenacao Economica
Luanda - The Integrated Municipal Intervention Programme (PIIM) has 1,299 projects in progress, out of the 1,749 approved, in the 164 municipalities of the country.

The programme, launched in June 2019, has 89 other projects with conditions already created to start.

 

Budgeted at US $2billion, it provides for actions in the sectors of health, education, construction and public works, administrative infrastructures, roads, energy and water, security and public order, urbanization, and basic sanitation.

 

Speaking to parliamentarians at the National Assembly, last Tuesday, in the last debate on the 2021 General State Budget (OGE), involving the specialty commissions), the minister of State for Economic Coordination, Manuel Nunes Júnior, considered this result “quite encouraging”, as it represents 79% of the projects in the pipeline.

 

"It is a good experience, which will be useful for the execution of other types of tasks", underlined the minister, who valued the fact that it is the first programme that starts at the local level, as it was the municipal administrators who carried out the identification of the projects according to priorities.

 

According to the minister, it is necessary to “not let your guard down” and continue with the inspection and monitoring of the ongoing tasks, so that the works are carried out in a timely manner and with quality.

 

PIIM favours, at the operational level and in the short term, a set of initiatives aimed at implementing the policies set out in the National Development Plan (PDN 2018-2022), articulated with the National Strategic Plan for Territorial Administration (PLANEAT 2015-2025) .

 

It aims to materialize Public Investment (PIP), Development Support Expenditure (DAD) and Basic Activities (Act) actions, with priority for social actions, in order to discourage rural exodus and promote socioeconomic growth and inclusion in the country.
