    Speech by comrade João Lourenço, President of the MPLA

    AngolaFrom cabinda to cunene, one people, one nation / long live the mpla / long live the 7. th extraordinary congress of the mpla / long live Oma / viva jmpla / mpla – improve what is well, correct what is wrong / Mpla and the new challenges,

    Dear Comrades / Comrade Luísa Damião, Vice President of the mpla / Comrade, Paulo Pombolo, Secretary-General of the mpla / comrades of the party’s directorate – central committee / comrades members of the political Bureau / comrades delegates to this 7th Extraordinary / militant comrades of the mpla, overall / Angolan people,

    First of all, I would like to start by thanking comrade Sérgio Luther Rescova, first secretary of the provincial committee of the luanda party, our host, for having met with this very beautiful room, beautiful of our colours, the black, the Red and yellow. It is a very good mobilisation, for the short time they have had, since we were committed to organising the congress itself (applause).

    This mass act takes place, not only to present the party’s new direction, exit from Congress, but also to test our ability to mobilisation, so that the machine does not fail, we will not fail. It needs to be permanently oiled and the way to do it is, periodically, to perform mass acts of this kind.

    Here’s the promise that the next one won’t be in If we can fill this space, we must accept a bigger challenge and prepare to do next door (applause) in the next act.

    Dear Comrades,

    I would like to take this opportunity once again to congratulate our militants, who yesterday earned the trust of delegates to the 7th Congress (extraordinary) of the party, who elected them to members of the board of the party.

    We take the opportunity of this congress to strengthen the direction of our party. It’s not that the one we had wasn’t good It must be clear. The one we had was good, was elected, by the same delegates at the 2016 ordinary Congress, but, as man is an ambitious animal, always wants more and better, we sought, with the reinforcement we managed yesterday, to find A direction that better responds to the challenges of the present and the future

    I hope we can achieve that. We have managed to put a reasonable number of young people in the direction of the party, a reasonable number of young people, but above all, we have managed to do something that has not been very easy in recent years, to put in the direction of .

    We have managed to put in the direction of our party a greater number of intellectuals, young people – coincidentally -, people with higher education, from the most diverse areas of knowledge and who will certainly help the mpla and its executive to better comply with their Responsibilities to the nation, to the Angolan people.

    As a general rule, when we leave our congresses, we go out with the most And the case of this 7th extraordinary congress is no different. We go out with the most energised energies, with more strength, so that we can fulfil the role that is reserved for us in society, to direct the destinations of this country, until the vote is renewed in

    It happens to the political parties – a bit of what you do with computers – sometimes you have to do so-called ‘restart’, so that it works faster, to respond but promptly to the controls that the operator does. And in this case, this operator is the Angolan people.

    The Angolan people yesterday and our militants, above all, made a ‘restart’, to our party, so that, from yesterday, the party, in general and, in particular, its management and its executive will respond to More efficiently, faster than what the nation demands from us. Wait for us.

    Today, let’s talk – I promise we won’t touch what you’re waiting for. Let us not talk about corruption, we will not talk about the need to fight corruption, because we believe that the message has been passed Our militants, the citizens in general, absorbed it well. So we do not need to go back to this issue, which is important. But there will certainly be other matters not less important to raise now (applause).

    Let us return to an issue that has already been raised, first of all, by the executive and which has to do with the need for the redemption of our society But let us talk about this in another area.

    When we started this fight, I am sure that the most attentive people realised that the punitive aspect was higher, to the detriment of the educational aspect, of the educational aspect. And this is the educational aspect, which I would like to talk about.

    The Redemption of values must be promoted, first, by our party, by the mpla. We have to take the lead in conducting this process, the redemption of values.

    But we can’t work closed on ourselves inside the party. We have to have the ability to make a perfect marriage with civil society. It has to be a pair, a couple. Our party and civil society. If we can do that, we are sure that we will win this important battle in the task of organising our society a little better

    We must – I would not say mobilise, because they will also mobilise – we must bring with us the churches, Ngos and other civil society institutions, to successfully fight this fight, which is of all.

    But when we talk about the redemption of values, we also want to talk about the need for the citizen to I am referring to the need for the law to be respected.

    I would like to refer specifically to the need to comply with the law as far as property is concerned, because there is no society that is worth respecting, which has no principles, because otherwise it is a football game without referee. Now, imagine what it’s like to play a football game without referee?! No one understands. Therefore, the authority of the state must be respected, as far as private property is concerned.

    If at any time, one of us wants a land little, of 50 meters of 50 meters by 50 meters, to build his house, he goes to the authorities, to obtain the authorisation, the title of Concession and other documents required.

    For a majority of reason, companies, entrepreneurs who want to do, want to plant in a certain area of land, important projects, equally and, perhaps for a majority of reason, should do so.

    We have been watching recently, in addition to the well-known land invasion by the quiet citizen, we have started to see a new phenomenon, of companies that have spread from large areas of land, thousands and thousands of hectares to implement projects and do They pay nothing to the state. They build buildings, sell or rent these buildings to the population, make profits from it, generate revenue and pay nothing to the state They don’t pay fees, they don’t have any role to prove it’s Do you think the state should allow this kind of thing to continue? (no! ). We don’t think so either.

    However Noble the projects deployed in these lands, the law must be respected, the state must be respected.

    If we demand to the humble citizen that for a small piece of land to build his house, he must have roles, for a majority of reason, companies for very noble, I repeat, that they are their intentions, their projects, they have the obligation The do.

    A Democratic and constitutional state is a state that gives many freedoms to the citizen, to companies, but it must also be a demanding state, otherwise we will fall at the other end. Fall Into Anarchy. And that’s not what we want.

    That is why this educational task must be constant. In some cases, also punitive actions, but the educational aspect, the educational aspect, must always stand out.

    We, when talking about the redemption of values, would also like to talk about the need to redeem citizenship And Let’s give some examples:

    We had the case of a garden in lubango, a public area, that someone wanted to change the public end of this space and citizens exercised their right of citizenship, made noise and won. The order has been restored.

    In Benguela, we have the case of a factory that asked the state to build with an end, but ended up building something different from the one authorised.

    When we ask for authorisation, we are given the concession, the concession is clear. The State allows the citizen, the company to carry out a project for a specific purpose. If you change that end, with the aggravating of, when that end has just been harmful to the environment, we give the citizens absolutely right, to organise and demonstrate.

    It is not acceptable that factories, which pollute the air very much, should be built in areas of residence without the state acting accordingly.

    Dear Comrades,

    Some will say: ‘ well, the president is talking about things that do not bring bread to the citizen’s table, at the table of families But man, therefore, not only bread lives man. We don’t just have to talk about bread, but also about bread And because bread is important, we would like to talk a little about one of the challenges we identified yesterday during Congress, which is the challenge of National Production, of the need to increase national production. We said yesterday that we will only be able to fulfil this responsibility if we can get the private sector of the economy

    The State is not running away from responsibility. The State is not saying ‘do you this is not my business’. No. On the contrary, this is our business, all of us. But we are in a market economy and indeed production must be made by the private sector.

    We will give all the necessary support to the private sector, so that it grows, develops and can then fulfil its responsibility, to produce goods and services and to provide employment.

    We, the state, executive, are not perfect either, and we must acknowledge that, as far as national production is concerned, there is at least one of our responsibility, which is behind And we will do everything to give another speed.

    I am referring to the need for the privatisation of those units that are still in the public forum today, but which are practically idle. They don’t. They produce bad. Produce little. We have long recognised the need for privatisation of these units. And that’s to be done.

    We have to make things happen. Things are supposed to happen. They’re not just to be said. Things are to be done.

    We do a lot of meetings, maybe too It is an addiction that is already old, comes from the past, comes from the beginning of our The meetings are good, that’s where the plans, the strategies, but then we need to get our decisions out of paper for practice and sometimes we realise that something is stuck. We need to take off In This particular case of privatisation, we really need to take off. We need to get started

    The world has to see that we came out of speech for practice, that we made available to the private sector what was before the public sector, so that it can, better than us, the public sector, produce the goods and services of which The economy and society need it.

    We were able to establish a very close relationship with business associations. There is dialogue. The dialogue is very fluid. There’s a lot we’re not imposing. The Executive is not imposing. You’re listening to the advice of corporate associations.

    Entrepreneurs must have a voice when it comes to themselves. If we want to draw up policies for the public sector to start, we have to listen to And the good news here is that this is already happening.

    We have a lot of money and when we talk about the need for private investment, we are generally told to be: ‘ yes sir, it takes private investment, but the state has to put energy there, it has to improve The Access s’. At least those three things.

    And somehow this has been done, but there is little talk about something that I consider so important or more than the placement of these infrastructures, a little throughout the country.

    We announced, relatively recently, the granting of a credit line from a German bank, Deutsche Bank, to serve the economy, of course, but by re-writing it to the private sector.

    We announced the figures, there was applause, of course, but my great fear is that entrepreneurs, those who are already, potential entrepreneurs are in the cuando, in the moxico, in the lundas, in bie, without wanting to discriminate against anyone

    What I want to say is that they are far from the capital, they are not able to access this facility, that they have to come to Luanda, stay here for a month or as long as it takes to contact the banks Therefore, this cannot happen (applause).

    What I mean is that we must create conditions for those who are there, in those distant provinces, do not need to come to Luanda to provide credit facility.

    We have to get our banks to be able to provide those services there Banks must have a national dimension (applause). Meet the citizen, wherever he is. The Bank has to meet the entrepreneurs, the citizen and not the other way around. The citizen does not have to walk a thousand and 500 kilometres looking for the bank (applause)

    Dear Comrades,

    Over many years, we have seen fairs, exhibitions, exhibitions and, as pompously we like to say – for us, everything is international -, international fairs.

    But what is sad is that much of these fairs were mainly used to expose imported products. They were window windows for us to improve our import capacity. And we don’t care little

    What we want and we like the fact that we start to see that things are starting to reverse. We don’t want windows to show what was made in Germany. We want windows to show our internal production capacity, to show ‘made in Angola’, what was produced in cabinda or cunene, or anywhere else in the national territory.

    These National production fairs deserve all our affection. We will cherish, we will help the business associations that have this responsibility of the organisation of fairs, especially if they are fairs to show our internal potential. Citizens and entrepreneurs must know what galadima produces, what is produces, what namibe produces. That should be exposed.

    Our own media should help show our capabilities, what has already been done in the country. And There’s a lot that’s been done. So, as regards fairs, today they are no longer limited to Luanda. Some provinces can already hold fairs. We encourage you to continue to do so, but to worry, above all, to show what we have already produced.

    When we talk about national production, sometimes we are only looking at the giants, we are looking only at the big entrepreneurs, but we have to start looking, especially, for the small entrepreneur, the medium and even the one who has not yet He’s an entrepreneur, but he has And he who has the potential to be an entrepreneur, no matter what size, must be cherished, must be supported (applause).

    I am talking about Entrepreneurship (applause), especially entrepreneurship within young people. Young people, by their own young people, are generally very innovative. Sometimes they lack small support, small means (applause). And it is these small support that we must seek to find so that young people can then put their imagination at the service of the economy, at the service of

    And once again, my call for the media. The media has a very important role as a scout. Do you know what the scout is?

    In Sports, there are scouts to discover the talents. Who is a good player in the neighbourhood, who someday may become a star in Bayern Munich. Some Scout has to find him in the neighbourhood, where he plays barefoot and with sock ball.

    Entrepreneurship is the same thing. We have to find out, we have to have these scouts and the media can be one of them Discover the young people who started with small things and who stood out today.

    I don’t want to quote names of small companies created by young people who Sometimes he started alone, then already employed two friends, then already employed 10 people in the neighbourhood and today employs 40 to 50 people (applause). These good examples, of success cases – success is not just having a company that is in the big taxpayers group. Success doesn’t matter the dimension.

    Who starts from scratch and passes to five had success. Progressed. It’s not just who starts from 500 and passes to 502. Who had more success there? Who starts from scratch and reaches five, to 10, had more success than who starts with 500. was already 500 and only grew one or two.

    So my call is that we work on the discovery of these young talents, who are not just waiting to be civil servants, pressing the civil service, waiting for the state to give them employment. They themselves find jobs, not only for themselves, but they still employ their friends, their classmates, with their initiative (applause).

    So let us all, together, the executive, the business associations, the media, I repeat – I insist very much on the media and other institutions of our society – do this work, to help create micro and small businesses.

    I don’t get tired of saying that the state has no ability to employ everyone, to admit to everyone as civil servants. It has a responsibility to promote employment policies. But promoting employment is not just being a public employee. Promoting employment is creating conditions, precisely so that there are such micro, small and medium-sized enterprises.

    It is with thousands of these micro, small and medium-sized enterprises that we will solve the problem of unemployment We can’t have many sonagóis, have many endiamas, not many taags, big companies. But we can have thousands, millions of small companies, which will produce as much or more than few large companies. Thousands of companies must produce much more than a few large companies.

    I have forwarded my speech there to show how important the private sector of our economy should be at this time and not only. Always. It is not just because we are in a grip situation that we are engaging in the private sector We are trigger the private sector forever. His role must be growing. You could help us. Helping the state to get rid of the great weight of public companies. The State should be replaced by the private business sector in this area.

    The private business sector should occupy the public sector area as regards the production of goods and services and job generation.

    Dear Comrades,

    Yesterday we inject, in the direction of the party, talented young people and perhaps therefore the expectation that, from tomorrow, the team captain will dispense eight of the 11 players, to be replaced by the young talents that They came in yesterday (applause) No!

    What I mean is we can’t feed that expectation. On the contrary. I’ve never seen any team captain, no coach do eight, nine replacements. Otherwise you lose the game (applause). Surely he loses the game. He’ll make the necessary replacements.

    Sometimes it doesn’t do any, but you can do two, you can do three. What counts is not so much the number, but it is the quality of the substitutions that are made (applause) The Coach can’t just listen to what the bench says, what the fans say (applause). You need to listen, you need to listen.

    You better listen, but you can’t just listen and do 100 percent of what the fans tell you. Or lose the game.

    So by that I just want to say that we are listening. We’re not deaf, as someone told agt technicians and that I didn’t like it at all We have to respect each other (applause).

    We cannot be deaf, we have to listen, listen is a virtue, but it is after hearing that we have to sit, reflect on what we hear and make a decision, as right as possible, because those who say are thousands, general rule . Who decides is one.

    And if the decision is wrong, those same thousands, who advised him to do this or that, will be the first to sacrifice him (applause). So that to say that we will act carefully. There’s this expectation that there will be replacements on the They will happen when they have to happen and the size they have to happen (applause)

    Dear Comrades,

    I would like to finish by thanking once again for the participation of all the mpla militants in this process that has led us to the realisation of this 7th extraordinary congress of our glorious Thank the delegates of all provinces, for the choice, for the election of this new direction of our party I think we will be proud of this decision, which we have taken in the middle

    We needed to do the ‘restart’, which I referred to at the beginning, so that, with more energy, then we have breath to reach the goal, which in this case will be the next elections

    But Meta is not just ambition to win the next elections. The goal is, above all, the ambition to solve these challenges, which we have already met: the challenge of production, exports, the promotion of employment, finally, all these challenges, which, whether or not there are elections, is a duty That we have to the homeland and we must therefore face them and seek to be winners.

    From Cabinda to cunene, one… people!
    One… Nation

    Long live the mpla

    Long live the 7th extraordinary congress of the

    Mpla – improve what is well, correct what is wrong .

    ” VAT will not result in a general increase in prices, so vat replaces consumption tax. This yes, the IC is a tax tax. With the consumption tax on taxation, tributamos in marketing, it is the so-called Cascade Tax, which will be eliminated with the single rate tax. The CI GOES FROM 5 to 30 %, when vat is a single rate of 14 %.”
