Within the framework of cleaning and conditioning activities in the city of Bata, the Government has begun to implement the measures necessary for the success of this Shock Plan, beginning with the dismantling of the food street markets in Mondoasi, Mercado Central and Bikuy.
Along the same lines of action, the Prime Minister of the Government, Charged with Administrative Coordination, Francisco Pascual Obama Asue, once again met the body of entrepreneurs operating in the city, at a meeting which was a continuation of the one held with the group last Thursday.
During the meeting, Obama Asue once again insisted that the role the entrepreneurs must play in the work of cleaning and conditioning of the city of Bata was as essential as the level of involvement that the rest of the citizens must show during the programme which began on Friday last week.
The deadline for the companies to clean and paint their respective grounds and establishments has been set for 15th August. After that time, the Minister for Public Works, Housing and Town Planning will impose the sanctioning measures necessary in order to comply with the mandate, the aim of which is to improve the current image of Bata.
Within a different context, the Government member stressed that Equatorial Guinea could achieve a better business climate if everyone respected the law, in particular with respect to the payment of taxes, and he once again underlined the importance of meeting the tax obligations set out in current legislation in a regular manner and through the established payment procedures, as only in that way will they directly impact the State coffers.
At another moment during the meeting he invited expatriate entrepreneurs to respect the Law on Foreigners, and have all the necessary documents in order which accredit them with living and freely carrying out their business in Equatorial Guinea.
During the meeting, the Prime Minister of the Government, Charged with Administrative Coordination, was accompanied by the Ministers for Public Works, Housing and Town Planning, Diosdado Nsue Medja, and the Minister for the Interior and Local Corporations, Faustino Ndong Esono, respectively.
