Economic operators get vehicles for transportation of goods in Malanje

At least 24 economic operators linked to the agricultural sector benefitted from trucks on Thursday (7) for transportation of agricultural products from countryside to the city and vice versa.

The move is part of the second phase of the Integrated Rural Trade Development Programme (PIDCR), carried out by the Angolan Government.

Benefitted from the vehicles are entrepreneurs operating in the fourteen municipalities of the north-east Malanje province, who will encourage trade activity in the region, mainly in remote areas.

The provincial governor of Malanje Marcos Alexandre Nhunga handed over the vehicles and called for dedication to performing the economic activities.

Launched in 2020 by the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the project envisages the acquisition of 3,000 vehicles to be distributed in phases.

The provinces of Benguela, Bié, Cuanza Norte, Cuanza Sul, Huambo, Malanje and Namibe are priorities in this programme.
