Angola: Minister Georges Chikoti Highlights Government's Commitment to Millennium Goals

Huambo — The minister of Foreign Affairs, Georges Rebelo Chikoti, said Thursday in Huambo City that the Angolan government has been working in the last years to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), especially the increase in school and hospital infrastructures.

The minister made the statement at the laying of the first stone for the construction of the Amizade Angola-China School, being built at Lossambo land reserve, situated in the surroundings of Huambo City, at a space of 1.523 square meters.

Georges Chikoti emphasized this commitment of the government, especially in the mentioned areas, because the armed conflict has devastated the country's infrastructures.

"The effort of the government is not simply based on the number of projects that have been taking place, but also to drop out, by 2015, of the list of countries that have failed to complete all the Millennium Development Goals set by the United Nations" he stressed.
