Luanda — The Government of Luanda Monday in the capital, together with municipal administrators and city chairmen, set a deadline of eight months starting in January next year for street vendors to regularise their activity.
The information was transmitted to the press by the provincial director of Social Communication, Carlos Gonçalves, at the end of a meeting chaired by the provincial governor, Bento Francisco Sebastião Bento.
The meeting assessed the implementation of the social impact programme, the strategies for the execution of the programme of regularisation of the informal trade and punctual measures intended to strengthen control.
According to the meeting spokesperson, over the said eight months, several awareness campaigns will be run, as part of a process that will go until the coercive phase that will lead to the dismantling of small markets on streets, squares and institutions.
The meeting has also set January as the month for the inauguration of the main social infrastructures reaching completion late this month like markets, schools and health centres.
