Angola: LIMIAR and Peasant Network sign collaboration deal

The protocol was signed by the president of the LIMIAR’s Board of Directors, Augusto SebastiAPound o, and the president of the Consortium Rede Camponesa, Gentil Viana.

At the signing ceremony, Augusto SebastiAPound o stressed that the protocol is a legal instrument that will create conditions for the valorization of cooperatives and arable land that are properties of retired militaries and of the former combatants.

According to him, the deal will also organize and streamline productive chains integrated by farms, farmers, associations and cooperatives, integrating them into the promotion, collection, conservation, and transportation of agricultural, fishery and forestry products for agro-industrial processing, national consumption and export.

On his turn, Gentil Viana referred to the wealth of the Angolan lands, namely, timber, flora, vegetation, water and above all the working population willing to work and raise their incomes.

Consortium work is a standard practice worldwide. Production chains are extremely complex and contain high levels of risk. The only way to handle these risks and win is to work in collectives and consortiums, he said.
