According to a statement from the Presidency of the Republic, to which VerAngola had access, the head of state guided the session that was "convened with the sole purpose of identifying Luanda's problems in a broader view and the search for answers so that the province shows vast improvement".
The provincial governor of Luanda, Manuel Homem, was responsible for the "detailed exposition of critical issues in the capital".
Among the issues addressed, the education sector stands out. According to the statement, the number of schools is still insufficient, with "a current deficit of 1100 schools".
Also noteworthy is the transport sector, where the insufficiency of the road network and a "transport service far below demand" was mentioned, says the note, adding that "1000 kilometers of roads need to be optimised, without forgetting the streets in the interior neighborhoods, and models of mass transport are urgently needed, such as the light rail".
The issue of water supply was also emphasized, which, according to the note, "only 30 to 40 percent of a housing network of 10 million residents has supply".
Speaking at the end of the meeting, Manuel Homem said that this session served to address the implementation and rescue of the main medium-term initiatives, adding that the various initiatives had been stopped "for reasons of various kinds" and that the Government is create both economic and administrative conditions to recover them, writes Angop.
The presidency's note also advances that "the exhaustive survey of the burning challenges of the province that houses the country's capital will continue in a second moment, within days".
