At the meeting, the commission was informed about the first phase of the Directed Self-Construction Project, "which consists of identifying already urbanized land, in 19 centralities in 16 provinces of the country", says a Government statement to which VerAngola had access.

On the occasion, Carlos Alberto dos Santos stated that "by 2027 the Government has around one million lots available", however for this first phase, approximately 325,000 lots were presented.

The minister also explained that, in this first phase, the project should not cover the provinces of Moxico and Cuando Cubango as they already have housing projects planned.

"We are talking about 16 provinces, the exception is Moxico, which has already been planned in this space for the second phase of the Heróis de Cangamba Centrality. The other is Cuando Cubango, which has also planned another centrality with 3000 homes", he stated, mentioned in the statement.

It should be noted that the first phase of the project "prioritizes land that is already infrastructured, with increased energy and water capacity", the total cost of which is estimated at approximately 14 billion kwanzas.

"The big advantage is that we avoid, that if we don't take this action, we will have ghettos again, we will have housing built in a disorderly way and water lines again. And then we had the idea of having progressive infrastructures in the short, medium and long term. We will subdivide these lands and make them available to our people", highlighted the minister.

At the meeting, the economic committee also learned about the current situation regarding the application of the executive decree that determines the mandatory packaging of spirit drinks in glass containers, "emphasizing the impact of the measure on the sector, the inspection actions carried out, as well as the results achieved during the various meetings held between the Ministry of Industry and Commerce and the Angolan Beverage Industries Association".

Regarding this matter, the commission "recommended the maintenance of the measure, as the Executive understands that the negative impact on society with the continuity of this production is great", reads the note.

Furthermore, on the table were also issues related to the executive macroeconomic programming for 2024, the Strategic Plan of the Sovereign Fund of Angola 2024-2028, among others.
