Prime Minister visits Boavista island

Prime Minister Ulisses Correia said that his visit to Boa Vista aims to strengthen the partnership with the municipality, as has happened in other municipalities. All so that they can work together on the island’s great challenges, highlighting the safety and rehabilitation of Boa Esperança shantytowns.

“The first challenge is to solve the problems of the shack area, with quality housing and sanitation, and secondly, to transform Sal-Rei into a tourist city, promoting urban redevelopment and enhancing its waterfront, so that it has enough momentum to make local investments and allow tourists to leave the hotels, and finally to improve the level of security on the island “, proposes Ulisses Correia and Silva, emphasizing that only in this way Boa Vista will have an inclusive tourism.

Regarding security, the head of government stressed the importance of safety at work, both internally and in terms of tourist destinations, both in terms of compliance with municipal ordinances. In this regard, added the Prime Minister, the municipality has an important role so that citizens respect the rules, in particular the occupation of public roads, the rules of organization of trade, the building industry, the schedules of the establishments of nocturnal, the issue of unregulated alcohol sales, among other rules, which should be governed so as to create an environment compatible with what is thought of for the development of the island.

Finally, the premier has informed that in addition to these priorities, the government will make other investments, in particular in the water and energy sectors, providing the island with the distribution capacity able to keep pace with the growth dynamics of tourism, and in matters of health, providing answers to the local population and responding to the demands that tourism imposes.
