Angola gathers information on land management in Portugal

9 April 2019

The Angolan government is drawing up a new model of land management, said the minister of Land Administration and State Reform at the end of a meeting with the Portuguese Minister of Internal Affairs.

Minister Adão de Almeida, quoted by the Angop news agency, also said that Angola is “at a turning point in terms of the land management model,” which is why it is necessary to understand Portugal’s experience in the field of decentralisation.

Almeida said that this was a turning point involving the introduction of decentralisation dynamics. He noted that in 2020, the country will hold the first municipal elections.

This month the Angolan parliament is due to begin a debate on the essence of local authority legislation, so the experiences and information that is being gathered in Portugal “will influence the Angolan decision-making process.” (Macauhub)
