23 November 2006

Luanda, Angola, 23 Nov – The Angolan government approved Wednesday the contract signed between the Finance Ministry and Portuguese construction company Somague for the refurbishment, construction and equipping of nine of the country’s tax offices, officials said.

A statement published at the end of a Council of Ministers meeting said that the project handed over to Somague was part of the first stage of the fiscal reform project, but did not specify the financing involved.

The contract signed with Somague covers three tax offices in Luanda and a further six in the rest of the country.

At the meeting, the Angolan government also approved a private investment project for the construction of nine hotels in seven of the country’s provinces.

The nine hotels will be built in the provinces of Luanda, Huambo, Cabinda, Benguela, Cuanza Sul, Namibe and Huíla, and represent a total investment of US$11 million. (macauhub)
