Porto Novo, Nov 14 (Inforpress) – Communities from the countryside of Porto Novo, in Santo Antão, have been encouraging Porto-Novo emigrants to invest in the countryside of this municipality as a way of valuing this part of the municipal territory with a “great” tourist and agricultural potential.
This is the case of Martiene, one of the most important agricultural valleys of this county and very visited by tourists, whose residents have encouraged the emigrants, who have ties to this area to invest in the place, to also “help the local economy.”
“Just build a small holiday home, preserve those that already exist or recover the degraded houses that belong to the family,” appealed Cirilo Fortes, for whom Martiene presents “excellent conditions” to invest.
“To build in other places if our zone is the best we have”, questions the resident, one of the main enthusiasts of the initiative to encourage “the children of Martiene, inside and outside” of Cabo Verde to look at this locality.
