Luanda, Angola, 17 Nov – A ceramics factory with the capacity to produce 400,000 bricks per day is to be built in the city of Luena, in Angola’s Moxico province, by October of next year, businessman Bento Kangamba told Jornal de Angola.

The businessman said that equipment had already started arriving in Angola and the project, which is estimated to cost US$36 million and is the first of its kind in the East of the country, would boost the region’s construction sector.

“We are responding to the opportunity that the Government has given us, in terms of taking investments to the entire country and, thus, contribute to reducing unemployment. That is how we are going to develop Angola, with everyone’s contribution,” he said.

For Moxico province, Kangamba said he also planned a housing project that would begin next year.

In Luanda, Kangemba, through construction company Beja-Construção Civil, plans to build 800 new medium-income homes. The infrastructures have already been installed and the first houses will be delivered in December 2009. (macauhub)
