Praia, Jul 16 (Inforpress) – MpD Secretary General Miguel Monteiro said Monday that Cabo Verdeans will soon have a solution that dictates fair prices for sea and air connections for islands.
The MpD secretary general made this statement at a press conference in response to statements made by the PAICV leader about the ins and outs of the Cabo Verde Airlines loan and journalists’ questions about the “absurd” prices of the nationwide air connections.
“The Government, led by Ulisses Correia e Silva, has chosen, through an international tender, a partner to have regular, efficient, safe and fair sea connections from next August,” he said.
However, because he wanted to dodge the journalist’s question about whether he considered the price of that a Cabo Verdean pay to travel between islands, the answer was: “We consider. And I want to give some information here, because sometimes some analysts say that in the Canary Islands the travel between islands is around 20 euros, but forget that the government receives funds from the European Union to subsidize these trips,” he said.
