Luanda — The "Aldeia Nova" project in the municipality of Cela, coastal Kwanza Sul province currently records a daily production of around 60 000 eggs.

The data were released Monday by the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Pedro Canga at the meeting on assessment and discussion of the General State Budget (OGE) 2013.
