Pitra Neto was commenting on the state of review of the current General Labour Law, during a meeting of  the National Social Concert Commission chaired by the vice president, Manuel Domingos Vicente.

He explained that the aspect that dictated the process of review of the law was the need to turn the General Labour Law into an instrument that facilitates the generation of job.

“Within a context like that of Angola, where there are high unemployment rates, it is crucial that social justice and tranquility of people result from job,” he stated.

The minister added that the laws at the level of the public finance, investment and legal-labour relations must converge to facilitate the generation of job, both by the local and foreign operators around the country.

According to him, the current Labour Law is essentially focused on the large companies, at a time the world considers micro, small and medium size companies as the ones to create the environment to create jobs, both in the fiscal and macro-economic stability plan.
