André Moda said that Angola has a production capacity of 500 thousand cubic meters per year, however, not even 250 thousand cubic meters are explored.

"And of that, 80 percent are exported, the rest is consumed, because we don't have a well-tuned industrialization to give what the people need," said André Moda, in statements issued by public radio.

The official stressed that the authorities intend to massify the creation of jobs, "creating anchor companies, that bring together value chains, but above all that sustain the weak communities due to poverty and hunger".
