    Speaking at a public presentation in Germany, Andre de Jesus Moda stated that, under his responsibilities regarding forests exploration, the government has drafted an overview of the current situation for a  sustainable renewal of the forest resources.

    The deputy minister said that the Ministry of Agriculture has drafted a programme targeted  for the establishment of industries of timber exploration and a  transformation in the country, specifically aimed at encouraging national and foreign private sectors to invest in forestry.

    According to the minister, governmental action needs to have as a goal  the renewal of the rural economy and the economic and commercial world.  as well as the eradication of hunger, and the reduction of unemployment.
