According to the official – quoted in a statement from the Ministry of Economy and Planning, to which VerAngola had access – the Executive has planned "the construction of new markets with adequate infrastructure, as well as the requalification and addition of complementary services (restaurants, nurseries, parking, sanitation and sanitary infrastructures, banks, insurance companies, firefighters, police, etc.)".
The official also said that the provincial governments have identified spaces to develop municipal markets, with nine spaces found in the capital. "Provincial governments have been identifying spaces for the development of municipal markets under public-private partnerships. We already have, at the level of the province of Luanda identified nine spaces, the idea is to start with one market per municipality due to the high density Luanda's population and the ratio of the number of markets per 100,000 inhabitants," he said, quoted by Rádio Nacional de Angola (RNA).
As soon as the identification stage of the spaces is completed, the public consultation will be carried out, said Augusto Dembo.
"Once this phase of identifying spaces is concluded, a public consultation will be held to assess the market's appetite and analyze the existing challenges for the operationalization of markets with the management of private entities. Once these procedures are completed, we will move on to the launch of the public tender", he indicated, quoted by RNA.
According to the note from the Ministry of Economy and Planning, "the increase in spaces for the sale of goods and services could contribute significantly to the organization of street sales and fairs in the country", whose project also involves "public-private partnerships in the construction and management of municipal markets".
The guardianship also recalls that the country joined the "SOURCE Platform, through the French Development Agency", which is "an international instrument for the preparation, monitoring and dissemination of infrastructure projects, which will allow to increase the attraction of partners private international institutions for the implementation of public infrastructure projects and to anticipate their realization".
