At the opening, Foreign Minister Téte António assured that the development of the agro-industrial branch is one of the executive’s priorities, in order to increase the sector’s contribution to the Gross Domestic Product and to the necessary diversification of the domestic economy.

The head of Angolan diplomacy recalled that farming is basic for many families’ living, also affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Today more than ever, he said, greater political consensus is required and the adoption of a common program for food security within the framework of the CPLP, with a view to creating sustainable agro-food systems that make it possible to fight hunger and the effects of climate change.

In his opinion, an agreement on mobility among the member states of the bloc could favor not only the transit of people and goods, but also stimulate agricultural investments.

A recent UN report warned that in 2020 malnutrition reached 811 million people, while 30 percent of the world’s population lacked access to adequate food.

Cosan session in Luanda was part of activities related to the XIII Conference of Heads of State and Government of the CPLP, which began last Monday through exchanges at a technical level.

The Ministers Council of the organization will meet here tomorrow, and on Saturday the appointment will end with the leaders meeting, during which Angola will assume the pro tempore presidency of the association for a two-year term.
