Luanda – Angola has announced relief measures on the prices of essential goods widely consumed by the population, through the suspension of customs duties.

The measures entered into force on Tuesday (14), after the publication of the Provisional Presidential Legislative Decree No. 1/21 in the country’s Official Gazette.

 

This legal Act, expected to last 70 days countrywide, states that the measures are intended to protect the public interest on mitigation of the impact of the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on prices of essential goods widely consumed by populations.

 

The document also stresses the need to guarantee access to basic foodstuffs, as well as the maintenance of the purchasing power of citizens.
