The Ministry of Territory Administration last Wednesday, in Luanda, launched an institutional magazine on local governance dubbed "Nossa terra" (Our Land), in a ceremony chaired by the incumbent minister, Bornito de Sousa.
The 106-page magazine will initially come out every three months and will produce material relating to local administration, municipalities, towns and villages of Angola, with a view to showing the pace of development at those levels in Angola.
The creation of the "Nossa Terra
" magazine was inspired by the need to effect improvements in the communication between the central and local governments, among other aspects.
Speaking to the press, the director of the magazine, Severino Carlos, stressed that the magazine will highlight the good initiatives taking place at local level.
The launching ceremony was attended by the governor of Luanda, Graciano Francisco Domingos, directors of departments of the provincial government and of the Territory Administration Ministry.
