Neves also confirmed that the projects of David Chow Kam Fai, Honorary Consul of Cape Verde in Macau along with those of local businessman to help set up the casino industry in Cape Verde are still up to date (Macau Daily Times).

Several Dutch tour operators have begun to advertise flights from Amsterdam to Sal by Transavia, a low cost airline owned by KLM. Though Transavia representatives were not availiable for comment and the flights are not yet visible on the Transavia site, preparations seem to be well under way. Flights may not start before November and (again unconfirmed by Transavia themselves) they may have stops at Faro Airport, Portugal. By the way, Transavia already carried out flights to Sal and Boa Vista from Berlin and Paris recently (AW).
