São Vicente: China will finance construction of 88 social housing in the Portelinha área

Mindelo, Feb 1 (Inforpress) – The Chinese government will finance the construction of 88 houses in the Portelinha area in ​​São Vicente, which are the result of a commitment made in 2016 between the two countries and whose works are due to start later this year.

The project, as announced by the Cabo Verdean Government in a press release, will consist of 88 apartments, equipped with electricity, water, roads and drainage facilities and divided into 11 blocks and will also include green spaces, children’s playground and parking.

The technical and economic agreements for the implementation of the “Cabo Verde aid project” were signed Tuesday by the Minister of Infrastructure, Eunice Silva, who said that this was “further evidence of the Government commitment in the elimination of tin houses on the São Vicente Island and consequent improvement of the housing conditions of the Mindelo residents”.

According to the same source, the construction of these houses, which is expected to begin in 2019, is due to a commitment made in 2016 by the Government of China, when Prime Minister Ulisses Correia e Silva visited that country.
