According to the head of the Fisheries and Marine Resources department, what is being imported are salt by-products, which are not yet produced on national soil. In this category, according to Angop, the highlights, for example, are salt tablets, generally used in brewery equipment and in products used to clean hemodialysis equipment.

On the occasion, the minister said they were working with professionals in the sector to produce salt with a very high purity in order to "facilitate" the manufacture of by-products.

"We are working with salt farmers so that they can produce salt with a purity of 99.9 percent to facilitate the production of these by-products", she said, speaking alongside the inauguration of the Tchicamby Salinas, in Benguela.

Among other aspects, the minister said that the number of salt mines in Angola still does not meet the wishes of the authority, considering Angola's potential in terms of resources for salt production, adding: "For the city of salt, we are planning another eight salt mines, which means that our goals will be met in a short space of time."

"The possibility of production opens up here, but, above all, of employability for young people", she said, quoted by Angop.

It should be noted that the country's production, at the moment, is around 210 thousand tons of salt per year, a number above the needs estimated at approximately 70 thousand.
