Angola: Minister Wants Distinction Between Plan to Fight Poverty and Piim

Mbanza Kongo — The Minister of Social Action, Family and Women Promotion, Faustina Fernandes Inglês, Tuesday in Mbanza Kongo, Zaire province, called to avoid mismanagement in the implementation of the Integrated Plans: Local Development and Fight againts Poverty and Intervention in Municipalities (PIIM).

Addressing the administrators of the six municipalities, at the evaluation meeting of the Integrated Plan for Local Development and Combating Poverty, the minister asked for the identification of all projects carried out under this program and PIIM, both defined by the Government.

She stressed that, depending on the dates, it is easier to identify whether a given project is part of the program to combat poverty, which has been in force since 2017, or in the Integrated Program for Intervention in Municipalities (PIIM), launched in 2019.

"They must consider the beginning and completion of the works, depending on the date that was approved by the State Budget (OGE) or by PIIM", reinforced the minister, for whom a project that started in 2017 and was concluded in 2019 cannot be inserted in the PIIM.

She warned of the need to pay more attention to vulnerable families and ex-soldiers in the productive inclusion actions of the municipalities, stressing that there are municipalities in the country that are at the forefront in the implementation of the program to combat poverty, while others, not even for that reason.
