Businesspeople from the Netherlands interested in partnerships in Angola

1 June 2010

Lubango, Angola, 1 June – A group of businesspeople from the Netherlands arrived Monday in the city of Lubango, in Angola’s Huila province, on a trip to find partnerships, Angolan news agency Angop reported.

The head of the business mission, Van Hall Larenstein, said that the aim was to discover the opportunities that Angola had, particularly those in Huíla province.

Van Hall Larenstein also said that the Dutch businesspeople were hopeful about their objectives, as some of their consultants had been working in Angola for years and thus the search for Angolan partners was much easier.

He also said that, despite having started the market prospecting cycle in Huíla province, the Dutch businesspeople were also interested in partnerships in Huambo province, where they planned to travel in the next few days.

The delegation includes businesspeople from the dairy, water treatment, harvesting machine production (for potatoes, rice and soy) and professional training sectors.

Over the last few years Huíla has attracted interest from several international businesspeople, and this year has been visited by business missions from Italy, Portugal and the United States. (macauhub)
