He made the statement while visiting the company facilities.
Meanwhile, site’s manager Alexandra Monteiro for the company said “We have taken note of all what the minister has said. Indeed we have been here since 2011 and it’s high time we did something for the community. But before everything, we need to consult and follow proper procedures.”
