Cuito - The Minister of Finance, Vera Daves, Thursday in the city of Cuito, Bié province, highlighted the government's commitment to continue investing in the social sector, with a view to improving the living conditions of the population.

The government official was speaking during a meeting with the governor of Bié, Pereira Alfredo, and the municipal administrators, as part of her one-day visit to the province, which aims at checking the implementation of the processes under way in the region.

"Our commitment to the social sector is non-negotiable. We will continue to invest in this area, focusing on the priorities that the ministries and the Local State Authorities will identify, whether in the construction, rehabilitation and equipping of schools or in the training of teachers and others.

She was responding to the concerns of the provincial government regarding the lack of payment of some projects, some already in a conclusive phase and others yet to be started.  

Vera Daves said that they will continue to mobilise resources to keep investments consistent, despite recognising the limitation of both budgetary space and debt capacity.
