Of the nine companies selected, the Noble Group and Anseba stand out, which were selected for the three import batches defined by the Executive, according to the list released this Tuesday by the Ministry of Industry and Commerce and the one that VerAngola had access.

In addition to these two companies, Angoalissar Comércio e Indústria Lda, Bsrat General Trading Lda, Beilul Comércio Geral Lda, Merhat Comércio e Indústria Lda, Ros'bien Lda, Gulkis and Hidmona General Lda are also part of this list.

As mentioned, the import process will comprise three batches. The first takes place between May and July this year, aiming to import 75,000 tons. The second batch will take place from August to October, aiming to import another 75,000 tons, while the last and third batch will take place from September to December, to import 90,000 tons.

"Under the terms of the Framework Agreement signed with the winning companies, they also commit to purchasing rice produced in the country", said the authority, in a statement.

The ministry, in the note, states that rice is "one of the most widely consumed foods" by the country's population, "however, national production is still insufficient to cover the estimated annual demand for this product".

Thus, in order to "guarantee food security and protect national rice production, the need for imports was estimated at 270,000 tons" for this year.

Thus, this tender is justified by the fact that it is necessary to "establish rules of transparency, free competition for imports, at the best price, adequate quantity and continuity of supply".

Therefore, according to the statement, the "dynamic electronic procedure for licensing the import of milled or semi-milled rice, five percent split, in bags of 25 to 50 kilos" was opened, aiming to complement national production for the present.

"Thus, in the evaluation, the proposal that presented the lowest price (420,000 kwanzas per tons) was awarded, which, taking as a comparative basis, the international market reference prices, and the price declared by economic operators (700,000 kwanzas per ton), recorded in the Integrated Foreign Trade System - SICOEX, during the past few years, represents a significant price reduction and the country saves around (280,000 kwanzas per ton), that is, a reduction of around 50 percent", the note reads.
