According to a document, presented by minister of Economy and Planning Pedro Fonseca on Saturday to the members of the ruling MPLA party, there was a decrease of resources allotted to the services of general public, defence, order and security, from 18.9 % to 6.3%,  12.0% to 6.0% and  9.4% to 7.0%, respectively.
