Angola: Syanga Abílio Explains Angolan Government's Environmental Work

Geneva — The secretary of State for New Technologies and Environmental Quality, Syanga Abílio, last Sunday in Geneva, Switzerland, guaranteed the Angolan government's engagement in fulfilling the universal commitments to the environment.

Speaking at a top level seminar on the Protection of the Atmosphere for Future Generations, in the ambit of the 25th anniversary of the Montreal Protocol, Syanga Abílio showed the country's ratification of the four amendments to the Montreal Protocol and the Presidential Decree number 153/11 , which regulates the substances that impoverish the ozone layer.

He highlighted the lessons that have been learnt with the implementation of the Montreal Protocol, the engagement of developed countries, through the Multilateral Fund, in financing the national programmes, having requested co-operation for the transfer of technology and institutional upgrading.

The statements of the Angolan dignitary were made at a panel that included representatives from countries of Asia, America, Europe and Africa.

As of this Monday, the Angolan delegation will be attending the technical meeting which until November 14 will discuss the degree of implementation of the Montreal Protocol.
