Deputy PR ensures that "no one is left behind" while Angola becomes a middle-income country

The Vice-President of the Republic reaffirmed this Sunday Angola's commitment to implement concerted actions in the Doha Action Program for a graduation to a smooth and sustainable middle-income country, "leaving no one behind".


Esperança da Costa, who was speaking at the 5th United Nations Conference on Least Developed Countries, in which he is participating on behalf of the Head of State, João Lourenco, underlined that Angola has implemented an ambitious Social Protection Strengthening Program - Kwenda - with cash transfers to around 600,000 families and expected to reach 1,600,000 families by 2024.

In the economic field, and according to the Vice-President of the Republic, measures were implemented to resume the growth trajectory of the economy, and to launch the Informal Economy Reconversion Programme, to give dignity to work to more than eight million Angolans in the informal sector with the potential to broaden the tax and contribution base.

In the institutional domain, the official added that measures were implemented that made it possible to combat practices of corruption and impunity, which aimed at strengthening the democratic State and the rule of law.

The 5th United Nations Conference on Least Developed Countries, whose works opened this Sunday and continue until Thursday, constitutes an opportunity, in this decade, to accelerate the process of sustainable development, supported by capable international assistance and support to raise their full potential and ensure that the LDCs are able to find their own path to prosperity, says a government statement seen by VerAngola.
