Angola: Minister Defends Creation of Trade Facilitation Measures

Luanda — The Minister of Trade, Rosa Pacavira, said on Thursday in Luanda that the creation of measures for the commerce facilitation is very important for the country because the national production is still reduced.

The minister said so during the opening act of the national conference on the Validity of Measures for Trade Facilitation.

According to her, the Angolan government is working hard in order to reduce the imports as it confirms the creation of raising industry in the country.

She defended the need of creating infrastructures so as to harmonize the procedures of border checkpoints, aiming to facilitate and accelerate the circulation of people, as well as the clearance of goods.

The two-day event aims to validate the national plan of implementing the measures of future accords of trade facilitation under negotiation at World Trade Organisation (WTO), in the ambit of the Doha programme for development.
