The King of Morocco has promised to pay for the construction and to gift Guinea-Bissau with a 110-room hotel in Bissau, said Wednesday in Bissau the President of the Republic, José Mário Vaz.
The Guinean president, who spoke after his return to the country after attending the climate summit in Paris, France and the China/Africa meeting in Johannesburg in South Africa, said he had received this promise from the Moroccan sovereign on a brief stopover in Morocco.
The Guinean head of state explained that King Mohamed VI intended to provide Guinea-Bissau with a hotel facility to welcome its guests.
Vaz said, however, that 2016 would be a year dedicated to rice production to ensure food self-sufficiency in Guinea-Bissau.
To encourage people to engage in this task, the Guinean head of state gave assurances that next year he would work from Monday to Thursday and devote the remaining three days of the week (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) to working in the fields, “to solve the rice problem and feed the people.” (macauhub/CN/GW)
