Quoted by Angop, the minister also appealed to contractors to maintain the same dynamism, taking advantage of this dry weather season so that the project becomes available to the academic community this year.

According to the minister, the opening of the campus – which will include the Economics and Law faculties of Lueji A'nkonde University – will triple the number of students in the two higher education institutions. In other words, it will now accommodate 9000 students in three shifts in the Law and Economics courses.

According to Angop, the buildings are all finished, with roofing, electricity, plumbing, among others, ongoing work. The aforementioned campus has 74 classrooms, whose construction began in 2022, on 19 thousand square meters, in the urban district of Mussungue, in a project valued at 50 million dollars.

The rectory building, two rooms for mock trials, residences for students and teachers, libraries, auditorium, administration and leisure areas, etc., also make up the campus, which is funded by Endiama and will host, per year, in the first phase, more than 3000 students in Law and Economics courses.

The minister, who is working in Lunda Norte, visited the Dundo university campus, expressing satisfaction with the level of execution of the project. On the occasion, she also considered that the expansion of the training offer must respond to the needs of the labor market in the regions where universities are located.

According to the official, the State's focus has been on improving higher education infrastructures in order to ensure quality and expand the training offer.

"We intend that new courses created are in fact those that meet the needs of the local job market and this orientation is very clear in the National Development Plan 2023-2027 and the long-term strategy Angola 20-50", she said, cited by Angop.

However, she recognized that implementing new university courses leads to an increase in teachers and the budget, which scenario requires the availability of financial resources.
