"Passing anything from Lisbon to the rest of the country has great resistance in the services of the ministries. I am not saying in the ministers, I am saying in the services of the ministries. It is a loss ofpower. We have to be aware of this", said Ana Abrunhosa, in an interview on Conversa Capital, from Antena 1 and Jornal de Negócios.

Ana Abrunhosa admitted that there are services "which are much easier to change than others" and gave the example of the Civil Protection. "In Civil Protection it is very easy, everything that is being created in the scope of Civil Protection is in the interior territories", said the minister.

In the same interview the minister criticised the disputed between Coimbra and Leiria because of an airport.
