Luanda – The minister of the Territory Administration, Bornito de Sousa, said on Wednesday in Luanda that the reforms of the public policies, underway the country, aim at providing more efficient services to the citizen, and thus giving greater responsibilities to the local governments, under the decentralisation programme.
The official said so in the urban district of Maianga in Luanda during the launching of the edition of Angocities, “Fair of Angolan municipalities and cities", which is taking place under the motto "Life is made in municipalities”.
“It is strategic for the sustainable development of Angola that the structure of new settlements guarantees a more standardized national community, whose objective permits in a transversal and concerted way the municipal dynamisation, aiming for the formation of a decentralisation policy, creating vital conditions for a socially and economically balanced country”, said the minister.
According to him, the launching of Angocities also aims to divulge good practices of public administrations, through the presentation of projects by provincial and municipal administrations.
On the other hand, Bornito de Sousa announced the holding on 9-11 August this year of the first edition of Angocities Fair at the premises of Luanda International Trade Fair (FILDA), in a partnership with FIL.
