On the occasion, according to a statement from CIPRA, which VerAngola had access to, the head of state also recommended increasing domestic production and industry.
"The promotion of national industry, in order to offer a wider range of goods and services to citizens and guarantee employment, especially for young people, was the challenge launched by the President of the Republic, João Lourenço, to the new Minister of Industry and Commerce, Rui Miguêns de Oliveira", reads the note.
João Lourenço also "assigned" the new holder of the Industry and Commerce portfolio "to take measures in the sense that trade, in particular imports, "does not kill" the development of national industry".
"The Head of State said he was confident that he had delivered the Industry and Commerce sector into" good hands ", the statement added.
It should be noted that the inauguration ceremony takes place in the Main Hall of the Presidential Palace.
