Luanda - The Portuguese Mayor of Matosinho Chamber, Narciso Miranda Wednesdays in Luanda called for greater investments in planning of national urban centres, for demographically relief of the country's capital, Luanda.
Speaking on the sidelines of the meeting with the minister of Urbanisation and Housing, José Ferreira, the Mayor recommended investment in all sectors of other provinces with view to encourage the population to return to their areas of origin.
"People will not return to their zones of origin unless the conditions were created thus enabling their stay", said Miranda, who mentioned the development of agriculture and fishing foments, as the leading factors.
According to him, the housing programme of the government, providing for one million houses by 2012, is ambitious and the results will be positive if the issue related to the planning, quality and execution are cautioned.
The mayor, who arrived Wednesday in Angola, for a week-long visit, will hold series of lectures on "Housing Cooperative and directed Self-construction", in the provinces of Luanda, Cabinda, Benguela and Malanje.
