At the ceremony headed by President João Lourenço, the Minister of Transport, Ricardo de Abreu, explained that the infrastructure is part of a broader investment program, which aims to facilitate trade with other neighboring nations in the area of the Gulf of Guinea.
For Cabinda it will immediately mean a notable change in terms of mobility; in addition, it will reduce transportation time and freight costs, create new jobs and improve the living conditions of the population, he estimated.
Among the investments, he highlighted the construction of a deep-water port in Cabinda and works in the northern province of Zaire, including the recent opening of a river terminal in Soyo, from which the neighboring republics of Congo and Democratic Congo can benefit.
He confirmed that the port facilities are associated with a cabotage network, with the use of catamarans and other means of cargo, which will increase the capacity for the entry and exit of various assortments, as well as the safety of navigation.
The new works of the subsector also include important executions in the province of Luanda, the official said.
