M'banza Kongo — Several important events marked the northern Zaire province, during the year 2012, topped by the presidential visit to the capital city, M'banza Kongo, and to the oil-rich district of Soyo.
Moreover, the appointment of the new governor José Joanes André, the physical implementation of the Angola LNG project in Soyo, the announcement of the construction of a new airport for M'banza Kongo and the start of construction of the new provincial hospital, were also dominant facts.
The year 2012 also opened a new page to Zaire, with the launching of the project on infrastructure integrated into all major cities in this region, as M'banza Kongo, Nzeto and Soyo, whose works can give a new image to the localities as beneficiary as soon as its implementation phase ends.
Another gain is that the provincial executive has rehabilitated and asphalted the road linking M'banza Kongo to the Luvo border commune, while an identical project also heads towards the district headquarters of Noki which, similarly, shares the same border with the DRC.
The sectors of electricity, drinking water, transport, rehabilitation of secondary and tertiary roads, industry, trade, tourism, culture, fisheries, health, education, youth and sports, social work, cooperation and capacity building, among others, are still part of the plans of the local government for the year 2013.
