Huambo, Angola, 9 Oct – The governor of Angola’s Huambo province, Albino Malungo, Thursday invited Portuguese businesses to invest in the region, in the industrial, retail and agricultural sectors, in order to create new jobs.

The invitation was made during a meeting that the governor had in the city of Huambo with a delegation of the Portuguese Business Association (AEP), where he noted the need to invest in the industrial and agricultural sectors as well as in building thermal power plants and in the academic sector for the region’s development.

The head of the mission of Portuguese businesspeople, Alexandre Rodrigues, said that, with this openness from the government, he would work to start placing companies in the region, particularly those involved in the sale of construction materials, sale of machinery and decoration stores.

The Portuguese business group wants to set up in the Angolan market, outside Luanda.

The business group also plans to build a factory in Angola for production of taps and other materials, furniture and mirrors, which already exists in 11 countries. (macauhub)
