Angola: Economy Minister Checks Functioning of One-Stop Shop

Cazenga — The Economy minister, Abraão Gourgel, last Tuesday in Cazenga Municipality, Luanda Province, checked the functioning of the recently instituted One-Stop Shop for Entrepreneurs (BUE), due to the fact that he has learnt that some of the services in that institution have been inactive.

Speaking to the press on the spot, Abraão Gourgel revealed that measures are underway aimed at overcoming some of the constraints face by the citizens when resorting the services of BUE, including the access to micro-credit.

"We saw that about 800 processes have not yet been authorised due to administrative problems that can be resolved", revealed the minister.

The government official added that several applications have already had a positive reply for financing, but due to the lack of certain BUE services the projects have not been followed through with.

According to the minister, the new instruction is that the BUE staffs should not put hindrances to the applications for micro-credit due to the absence of certain services.
