Government creates company Roads of Cabo Verde to replace Institute of Roads

Praia, Apr 26 (Inforpress) – The Minister of Infrastructures, Land Planning and Housing, Eunice Silva, said today in an interview with Inforpress that the Government created the Estradas de Cabo Verde (ECV) company that will be in charge of the roads management in the country.

According to Eunice Silva, the ECV will replace the Institute of Roads following the same line as it has recently done with the creation of the Infrastructures of Cabo Verde (ICV) that replaced the Directorate General of Infrastructures.

“The company that is the Cabo Verde Roads (ECV) has just been approved and, like what Enapor does with the ports and what ASA does with the airports, ECV will take care of the roads. It will manage the roads of Cabo Verde,” said the minister, adding that the construction of the Cruz de Picos / Boa Entradinha roads financed by the World Bank will be launched on May 8th.

The ruler said that the creation of these two companies, first the ICV and then the ECV, is inserted in the reforms that the Government is doing to free the State, so that the private enters where “the private is able to do better “as well as where” the public can do better”.
