Logo mca siteThe official closing ceremony of the second Millennium Challenge Account Cape Verde (MCA-Cabo Verde II) will take place next Wednesday, November 29th, starting at 4:00 p.m., in the conference room of the Palácio do Governo, Praia.

The ceremony will be chaired by the Prime Minister of Cabo Verde, Ulisses Correia e Silva, with the presence of Vice President of the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC), Robert Blau.

During the event, the MCA-Cabo Verde Managing Director, Helder Santos, will present the final results of the second Compact.

It should be recalled that the partnership between the Government of Cabo Verde and the Government of the United States of America through the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) stared on 4 July 2005, when the first Compact was signed.

In December 2009, the MCC Board of Directors authorized the preparation of a new agreement and, on 10 February 2012, Cape Verde signed the second Compact.

After five years of implementation, the second Compact comes to an end at midnight on 30 November 2017. It aimed at achieving economic growth and poverty reduction through reforms in two priority sectors for Cape Verde: the Water, Sanitation and Hygiene and the Land Management sector.
