"We highlight the allocation of 100 million dollars for the earthworks of 430 kilometers of access roads that connect the main areas of tourist interest in the Okavango cross-border region, as well as the construction of the Dirico, Mucusso, Bwabwata and Bico de Angola border posts, in an investment estimated at 132 million dollars", stated the minister.

Speaking this Wednesday, at the opening of the first Investor Forum for the Angolan Okavango Region, Dalva Ringote also stated that the aim of these projects is to "enable the development of tourism in the region".

"We intend with these structuring projects to enable the development of tourism in the region which, due to its transversal nature, provides business opportunities in the most varied sectors, and the achievement of this aim necessarily involves attracting national and foreign investors in the region, since the private sector is the main driver of tourist activity in our country in the region, and in the world in general", she stated, quoted by Rádio Nacional de Angola (RNA).

In her intervention, among other aspects, the Minister of State for the Social Area highlighted that the tourism sector "represents one of the main priorities of the Angolan Executive within the scope of the National Development Plan 2023-2027", aiming at its "dynamization within the framework of the process of diversification of the economy, with its greater contribution to the gross domestic product being expected".

Thus, she invited all private economic agents to play "their role in the development" of that sector: "Therefore, all private economic agents, whether national or foreign, are called upon to play their role in the development of this important sector of economic activity, under free private initiative, constitutionally protected", she stated, quoted by Televisão Pública de Angola (TPA).

According to a statement from the Provincial Government of Cuando Cubango, to which VerAngola had access, the governor of Cuando Cubango, José Martins, considered "there are many opportunities in various investment sectors in Cuando Cubango, from tourism, hotels and restaurants, agriculture and livestock, mineral resources/oil and gas, agro-industry, commerce and services, having, on the other hand, recognized the difficulties, especially those linked to the lack of access roads, the need for road, airport and rivers with a view to facilitating the mobility of people and goods".

The first Investment Forum in the Angolan Okavango Region took place in the city of Menongue, under the motto "Exploring business opportunities", bringing together around 200 participants.
