Economic and Social Council prioritizes combating regional asymmetries

The Economic and Social Council (CES) of the President of the Angolan Republic held its first general assembly, electing three deputy coordinators and outlining work targets for the mandate, with emphasis on combating regional asymmetries.


Speaking to the press at the end of the meeting, the coordinator of the CES, José Otávio Serra Van-Dúnem said that the board members were presented with the board's bylaws at the meeting and addressed the issue of scheduling meetings and work methodology.

According to José Otávio Serra Van-Dúnem, the work of the CES is to advise the President of the Republic, with the presentation of proposals on cross-cutting themes, relevant themes in social, economic and business issues in Angola.

“But above all we are concerned with the agenda of problems that we have and that we are experiencing, for which we think that the CES has a word to say and that word will be given through working documents, above all through concrete proposals that we will issue as advisors that we are”, he stressed.

“We are thinking about the theme of asymmetries, in the National Development Plan, in some themes that, on the one hand, are transversal, on the other hand, are also specific themes linked to issues of crisis that we are experiencing, without prejudice to being able to also respond to questions put to us by the President of the Republic so that we can give our opinion”, he added.

As adjuncts to the coordinator of CES, university professor Maria Helena Miguel was elected for the social area, for the economic area the former Minister of Finance Armando Manuel, and for the business area Wanderley Ribeiro.

In December last year, the Angolan President appointed 44 individuals to join the CES, which includes businessmen, associations, cooperatives, researchers, among others, linked to the socio-economic development of the country.
