In addition to the ministers, the chairman of the Board of Directors of Sonangol, Gaspar Sebastião Martins, the Secretary of State for Tourism, Hélder Marcelino, among other individuals, were also present at the act.
On the occasion, Filipe Zau considered that talking about hotels and tourism is an important part of the diversification of the economy, taking into account "its direct or indirect employability as well as the "attraction it brings to the country".
The head of the Culture, Tourism and Environment portfolio, quoted in the note, also mentioned that the hotel will serve to develop conferences, "discuss business at the highest level" and generate income.
In addition, it will also be a site for the "development of culture where great artists will be able to exhibit their highly sought-after works, which until now had no space to present their works".
According to the statement, the HTCA has 201 rooms, including junior, luxury and presidential suites.
