The price of cement and other construction material might drop soon in Angola, as a result of the emergence of new plants.

This was said Monday in Luanda by the Industry minister, Joaquim David, Angola Press reported.

Speaking to Angop on the fringes of the National Conference on Housing, Joaquim David said the Government is counting on a steering plan to boost the emergence of industrial points that will contribute to the solution of the housing problem in the country.

He said the government’s investments in the industrial sectors encompasses  initiatives that lead to the emergence of new factories of cement, ceramics, ironware and timber in order to bring construction materials prices down at medium term.
 
“We have a four years executive programme. We think that with the implementation of its programmes and a strong intervention of the private sector, we will be in a position to respond to various domains of the field of construction and others,” he said.
