According to a statement from the Provincial Government of Cabinda, to which VerAngola had access, the work that is part of "the initial part of the first phase is taking place without constraints", and there is "financial availability to maintain the current pace".
This confirmation, adds the note, was made by José Kuvíngua, president of the board of directors of the Port of Cabinda, in the act of presenting, to the provincial government, the studies already carried out for the Planning Plan for the Free Zone of the Caio Deepwater Terminal.
Among other aspects, the hearing, which was guided by the governor of Cabinda, Mara Quiosa, also served "to gather contributions that allow enriching the aforementioned plan and ensuring the involvement, from now on, of the local business community".
Thus, Ricardo Aguiar, director of AGT's First Tax Region (Cabinda and Zaire), said that the entity is "prepared to install the customs post in the new port infrastructure, according to the defined schedule", the note reads.
In turn, businessman Tony Prince took advantage of the occasion to highlight the advantages that "Porto Caio will provide for commercial exchange throughout this region, facilitating the reduction of transport and import costs".
Eduardo Domingos, president of the Provincial Youth Council, highlighted the "importance of absorbing a lot of young local labor, in the various phases of the project", reads the statement.
