The decision came from the first ordinary meeting of the Economic Commission of the Angolan Council of Ministers, held this Tuesday at the Presidential Palace, in the upper city, in Luanda, guided by President João Lourenço.
According to a press release from the meeting, the amendment to the regulation for sharing electronic telecommunications infrastructure aims to "adapt the legal framework to support the sharing of infrastructure to the new reality of the sector and to international good practices".
"As well as defining the scope of action of the regulatory body for electronic communications in terms of negotiation and infrastructure sharing contract between interested parties", reads the document.
The legal regime for teleworking, a diploma that regulates the exercise of work activity usually carried out outside the company using information and communication technologies, was also approved at this session.
The approval of this diploma, according to the authorities, "will facilitate the exercise, by workers of the professional activity linked to public, private, mixed companies, cooperatives, social organizations and diplomatic and consular representations, outside the premises of the employer".
This measure "may result in increased productivity, decongestion of urban traffic, promotion and integration of people into the labor market, greater conciliation between the worker and family support, among other benefits".
The Economic Commission of the Council of Ministers also considered a proposal to update the Law on Merchant Marine, Ports and Related Activities with the aim of bringing it into line with the new international legal order.
The creation of "indispensable premises" for the promotion of international maritime trade, "as a priority to leverage the national economy", having as a starting point exports and foreign direct investment constitutes the purpose of updating the diploma.
