Angola improves priorities for National Development Plan 2023/2027

Angolan Government is improving the priorities to be included in the National Development Plan (PDN 2023/2027), a document that will guide the National Planning System bodies toward the preparation of activities and projects to be implemented.

PDN is a medium-term planning instrument, which comes up with the strategic goals by domain and respective action programmes, goals, projects and activities.

According to the Secretary of State for Planning, Milton Reis, the technical and ministerial meetings are currently taking place to improve the projects to be implemented over the next four years.

Speaking at the usual briefing of the Ministry of Economy and Planning (MEP), Milton Reis reiterated that the PDN will be analysed and appreciated in a session of the Cabinet Council this month (August).

“The calendar defines that we will take the approval of this important instrument of governance in the Meeting of the Cabinet Council in August”, said the official, to whom “the filters are fundamental, because they will allow us to establish priorities”.

He admitted the need to focus on the most important ones, looking at budgetary restrictions, an exercise that he considers to be “in the final stretch”.

The preparation of PDN is based on ELP – (Long-Term Strategy) Angola 2050, an instrument, approved by Cabinet Council on July 26t, awaiting its publication in the country’s Gazette.
