Luanda â€” The minister of Public Administration, Employment and Social Security, AntÃ³nio Pitra Neto, last Thursday in Luanda announced that the Executive will make some adjustments to the salaries of public servants in the end of May.
The government official said so at a press conference held to present the assessment of the activity of the Executive in this year’s first quarter, in which he also explained that the adjustments to the salaries will have as main criterion the expected inflation rate.
He explained that “with the policies currently being implemented there has been a recovery of the real purchase power, with the decrease of the inflation rates in the past twelve months.
Speaking about professional courses, the minister said the country now has about sixty thousand training centres at the level of municipalities, communes and wards, with national coverage.
He said the growth in the number of professional training centres has been taking place since the year 2000.
“Our estimate is that the level of growth, in terms of training capacity in the 2002-2011 period is over 250 per cent. To this has contributed not just the public training units, but also the private ones”, he said.
He explained that the professional training system is structured in four levels, number one being the one that caters for young people without the appropriate academic profile that enables them to enter the employment market.
AntÃ³nio Pitra Neto informed that the country needs to have the capacity to provide training for specialised Angolan manpower at all levels, particularly for the primary and secondary sectors of the economy, aimed at tackling the great challenges facing the country.
