Government of Angola builds basic infrastructure in industrial hubs

6 October 2014

Work to build basic infrastructure in the industrial hubs of Viana (Luanda), Caála (Huambo province), Negage, Soyo (Zaire province) and Saurimo (Lunda Sul province) will begin in 2015, said in Luanda, the Director of the Studies, Planning and Statistics Department of the Ministry of Industry.

Ivan Prado also said that the Ministry was aware that “interested entrepreneurs have many difficulties, given that in these hubs there are no water and power supply networks or sanitation services.”

In the Viana hub, on the outskirts of Luanda, the work will be carried out in 2015 and 2016, covering an area of ​​270 hectares, while in Negage, Soyo and Saurimo construction work will take place from 2015 to 2017.

“Five hubs will receive new infrastructure over three years, involving investment of about US$350 million to US$400 million,” Prado said, adding that the projects involved large hubs, of around 1,000 hectares each. (macauhub/AO)
