During a hearing with Angolan President João Lourenço, Ji addressed issues related to investments against drought, the local press reported.

At the end of the hearing, the executive explained that the technical analyses of Power China International are in the preliminary phase and should lead to projects such as the one recently put into operation in Cunene (south).

This new project allows the transfer of water from the locality of Cafu to the areas of Ombala yo Mungo, Ndombendola and Namacunde.

The Cafu canal, inaugurated in April by Lourenço, consists of a system for capturing and transferring water from the Cunene river to various districts, which includes a 160-kilometer pipeline and 30 chimpacas (watering places for cattle).
