The meeting aimed to exchange ideas on what could be done in the future taking into account the impact of the COVID-19 on the Angolan economy and the life of the families.
Lourenco also considered fundamental the concentration of knowledge and experience in accelerating the implementation of the National Production, Export Diversification and Import Substitution Program, which aims, among other aspects, to boost the national economy.
The Angolan president stressed the need to work towards food self-sufficiency through the production of basic goods of greater consumption, adding that incentives should be given to businessmen and women who invest in local production.
“For them, let the remaining barriers be removed, so that they have priority to access credit and foreign exchange, to import the machinery and raw materials they need,” the president said.
