Luanda — The project to combat malaria in Angola has been reinforced with funds initially expected to be allocated for the construction of a Presidential dental clinic, the Specialized Committees of the National Assembly decided on Monday.
In the session, the MPs of the 1st, 4th and 5th specialized working committees of the National Assembly discussed and approved the Revised Joint Opinion Report of the General State Budget, which goes to the final overall vote on Tuesday.
The head of the Economy and Finance Commission, Ruth Mendes, quoted by Jornal de Angola, said the issue towards the "Dental Clinic was widely discussed," and the parliamentarians reached a consensus for its withdrawal from the revised state budget proposal.
Ruth Mendes informed that other changes have been made to the Draft Law of the State Legislature, especially in Article 7, which addresses issues related to taxes and debtors.
Ruth Mendes, who was speaking to the press, at the end of the joint meeting, said changes have been introduced that exempt value added tax on imports made with domestic and foreign currency.
