Ressano Garcia Border
Nearly 800,000 passengers and 150,000 vehicles are expected to cross national borders during Christmas and the end of the year, according to estimates by the Tax Authority (TA).
Of this number, according to Osvaldo Corréia, head of the operations in the Tax Authority, 500 thousand will cross the border of Ressano Garcia.
The 800,000 people planned for this festive period, according to the source, exceed 700,000 people and about 200,000 cars from last year.
He added that in the context of the “Bwerane” operation, AT is committed to ensuring that the festive season takes place in an orderly manner.
“Since the 13th of the current month we have intensified surveillance in the 33 border crossing points in the country and we have reduced the number of stop controls so that there is flexibility in the mobility of people and goods,” he added.
At a joint press conference on Monday, the national director of Transport and Communications, Cláudio Zunguza, pointed out that multisectoral teams are already working with the operators in the interprovincial terminals, as well as in the international crossing stations so that there is no overrun of the standards of good service.
“We are verifying the prices practiced, the mechanical conditions of the buses, the availability of the drivers, the stocking and the list of the passengers so that the trip is safe and relaxing,” said Claudio.
In addition, INAE spokeswoman Virgínia Muianga said that INAE removed from the municipal markets, in one month, several deteriorated products valued at 2.1 million meticais, especially cereals, peanuts and preserves.
Muianga added that many of these foods are transferred to the municipal markets from the supermarkets. In this context, the institution shall ensure that deteriorated products are not sold to citizens.
Muainga pointed out that, in the period under review, 3634 commercial establishments were audited, particularly in retail trade.
Virginia Muianga said that the Zimpeto Wholesale Market is still sufficiently stocked and prices are stable.Source: Jornal Notícias
