Angola: Spanish business mission expected in Luanda

3 February 2009

Luanda, Angola, 3 Feb – A mission of Spanish businessmen from the Murcia region is due to arrive in the Angolan capital on 16 February to set up partnerships with their Angolan counterparts, the economic and commercial attaché to the Spanish embassy in Luanda said Monday.

Mariano Muela told Angolan news agency Angop that the mission, which will stay in Luanda until 18 February, would be made up of eight businesspeople linked to the food, construction, industrial, construction materials and oil sectors.

This will be the first Spanish business mission to travel to Angola in 2009, with other missions also due to take place this year jointly organised by the Múrcia City Council and the Commercial Department of the Spanish Embassy in Luanda, the diplomat said.

Another of the mission’s aims is to “seek to boost commercial relations between Angola and Spain and offer Angolan businesspeople contacts with Spanish companies that allow for synergies and benefits to both sides in carrying out their activities,” Muela said. (macauhub)
