Spanish company Incatema Consulting and Engineering will run an agro-livestock project in Angola’s Kwanza Norte province, under a contract signed with the Angolan government focused on food security in the country, Angolan news agency Angop reported.
The project, costing just over US$73 million, will be executed in the municipality of Samba Caju, with a view to exploring the region’s agri-livestock potential.
The presidential order authorising the Minister of Agriculture to award the contract said the Angolan government is committed to promoting projects to increase sustainable production of agricultural products and their processing, facilitating access to the market and making institutional purchases.
The same presidential order gives the Minister of Finance responsibility for establishing financial conditions for carrying out this agricultural project. (macauhub)
