"It is a presidential initiative project, the funds are from the Angolan Government. The promise was made by the President of the Republic, João Lourenço, during a working visit to Huíla", revealed António José Lenine, representative of the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Office.
Cited by Jornal de Angola, the official did not indicate a specific deadline for the start of the construction works. However, he informed that demining works are in progress in the area and that these should be concluded in the second half of December.
António José Lenine explained that the infrastructure will be built in the land reserve of the forest perimeter of the Institute of Veterinary Research, in Huambo, in an area of around 89 hectares.
He added that the guardianship is creating conditions for the manufacture of the vaccine that is usually administered in animal vaccination campaigns.
According to Jornal de Angola, the project also foresees the construction of a bio-veterinary centre.
In turn, Leonardo Sapolo, deputy governor of Huambo for the Infrastructure and Technical Services Sector, considered that this initiative will generate new jobs for young people.
