Angola: Brazilian builders to construct hotels to support Africa Cup of Nations (CAN) in 2010

23 April 2009

Luanda, Angola, 23 April – Brazilian construction companies Sequência Lda and OAS Lda would build four hotels in as many cities in Angola to help redress the lack of accommodation for the Africa Cup of Nations (CAN) in 2010, said the manager of Sequência Lda Wednesday in Luanda.

Renato Navarro, part of the Brazilian tourism ministry’s retinue, said that the hotels would be built in four of the cities hosting the Africa Cup of Nations starting January 2010, and the first hotel was planned for Lobito in Benguela province.

He said that the Lobito hotel would have 180 rooms and be built over an area of 12,000 square metres and would be ready by the start of the Championship.

Navarro also said that the building project for the four hotels was estimated at US$100 million.

Navarro, whose company intends to set up in Angola over the next three to four months, added that he only had specific information about the hotel to be built in Lobito, and added that the projects and building locations for the remaining hotels in Cabinda, Luanda and Huila were still to be determined.
