Praia, Oct 30 (Inforpress) – The Pro-Praia Association expressed itself today with eager expectancy for approving on the details the Draft Law that creates the Administrative Regions, demanding, however, the special status for the City of Praia.
Speaking to Inforpress, José Jorge de Pina said that the association he represents is “looking forward” to the final approval and implementation of the Law that creates the Administrative Regions, but warned that it will only support the measure in the future when, in this process, the City of Praia benefits of its special status.
“We are convinced that the general approval will be followed by approval on the details, safeguarding some principles, namely the constitution of the regions of South and North of Santiago, thus resulting in the creation of the metropolitan area of Praia that integrates Ribeira Grande de Santiago, Praia and São Domingos”, he said.
The same source also defended the possibilities of essential areas of economic and cultural activities, among others, be autonomous, so these regions can independently exercise and develop the administration and authority of ports, marine and fisheries, fuel logistics and cereals, tourism, fisheries, commerce and agribusiness.
