Angola: Managers Urged to Improve, Book Their Files

Luanda — Ministerial managers and other officials from public and private owned institutions have been urged to include in the construction plan of institutions adequate facilities for booking their files.

The deputy director of the National Archives, Francisco Alexandre made the appeal Thursday in Luanda while speaking to the press regarding the roundtable on file management.

According to him, the officials neglect these sites in the institutions, forgetting their importance, as well as the history of the country.

He said that the activity held under the cultural November 2012 programme, called attention to the ministerial departments and other institutions.

The event focused on the importance of operation of intermediate and central files in these institutions, both public and private.

The National Archives of Angola, the organ governing national archival policy, has several projects, with stress to the monitoring of file services in institutions that carry out a series of training of technicians in this field, under the initiative of the Ministry of Culture.

The event gathered directors general of National Archive and Library, Alexandra Aparício and João Pedro Lourenço, respectively.

The participants discussed the implementation of file system and their importance to various institutions.
