On the occasion, the head of state highlighted the good performance of the BNA in the context of the national economy, "a fact that gives merit to the bet on José de Lima Massano to remain in his post", according to a brief note from the Presidency of the Republic, the that VerAngola had access to.
João Lourenço also considered that the performance of the national economy depends on the obligations of the central bank and stressed that the institution has "performed well" its role.
"The BNA has fulfilled its role well, hence the fact that, having completed the formalities required by law, the parliamentary hearing that passed with approval, we therefore decided to renew it for another term in the certainty that, as much as in the recent past, from now on he will continue with his work and commitment", he said, quoted by Angop.
He also added that he expects the governor to contribute to the success of the economic policies that the Government has carried out, wishing him "much success".
"So I can only wish you much success, the country is counting on you," he said.
In turn, Lima Massano reiterated the BNA's bet on giving greater resilience to the economy, within the scope of the country's evolution and underlined that in recent times there has been a decline in inflation, a result of the efficiency of the work carried out.
The governor, in statements to the press after taking office, cited by Angop, said that they will "continue to work to create conditions" for the economy to become increasingly robust. "We will continue to work to create conditions for our economy to become increasingly stronger and capable of meeting the main desires of citizens", he pointed out, quoted by Angop.
He also considered that the country still has a way to go, with emphasis on food security.
It should be remembered that José de Lima Massano was reappointed to the position, whose appointment took place last Friday, December 2, after observing all the legal procedures, namely the hearing in the National Assembly.
