This investment also foresees that 62 new jobs will be created during the 2020/2021 agricultural year.

According to the revelation made this Monday by Agrolive's director general, Inocêncio Katiavala, dams are also being built to help water crops during the drought.

He also said, quoted by Angop, that 350 hectares of land are being exploited, with maize production this year expected to reach 500 tons and beans 100 tons.

According to Inocêncio Katiavala, this investment aims to increase the production and marketing of corn and beans in that region, responding to the country's food problems and contributing to the growth of the economy.

The rehabilitation of the access roads to that area is also part of the project's plans, so that agricultural products can be disposed of quickly and efficiently.

Florinda Nginga Lungi, assistant administrator of the municipality, applauded the initiative, considering that it is an asset for the area, since it will boost production growth and help reduce unemployment.
