The Ministry of Rural Transformation and Community Development focuses on infrastructure in several rural areas. To achieve its goal, the ministry has partnered with the Ministry of Infrastructure Development to pave new roads in several villages. Chief executive Valentino Shall spoke to Love News about the ministry’s initiative.
Valentino Shal, CEO of the Ministry of Rural Transformation: “Road infrastructure in rural areas is something that has been neglected for a long time and because of this, rural communities and the rural sector have not been fully integrated into the mainstream economy and so what we are doing, it’s building new streets. Repairing those streets, streets in villages for example across the country, working with the Ministry of Infrastructure Development. What happens when you do that is people start to move into these areas. You have new construction that creates employment opportunities that stimulate the rural economy and that’s the kind of push we’re doing. So, you know, people are building new businesses. people are starting their own initiatives and it gives people new opportunities and so we will continue to push rural roads, rural streets this year as well.
