Government approves 5% civil service salary increase

This Wednesday, January 17, the Angolan government approved a 5% increase in the basic salary of the civil service as of this month, as part of the Roadmap for the Implementation of the New Remuneration Architecture of the Public Administration (RINAR).
“The 5% that is now being impacted on civil service salaries” has other impacts because “reflexively to these salaries are also the allowances, which are calculated on the basis of the basic salary,” said Angola’s Minister of Public Administration, Labor and Social Security, Teresa Rodrigues Dias.
Speaking to journalists at the end of the first extraordinary session of the Council of Ministers, chaired this Wednesday by Angolan President João Lourenço, she said that the adjustment to the basic salary of the civil service is the result of RINAR and the 2024 Budget.
The Angolan Council of Ministers, as well as approving the increase in the civil service basic salary, also considered the proposals for the Anti-Doping Law in Sport and the Law to Combat Illegal Mining Activity, and approved a presidential decree creating the Angolan Order of Biologists.
The first session of the Council of Ministers in 2024 also considered a draft decree amending the organization and functioning of the Auxiliary Bodies of the President of the Republic.
