Luanda, Angola, 28 July – The Angolan government is analysing “in depth” the possibility of taking part in the privatisation programme in Portugal, the minister of State and head of the Civil House of the Angolan Presidency, Carlos Feijó said Wednesday in Luanda.

Summarising the government’s activities in the second quarter of 2011, Feijó said that the Angolan authorities had carried out three studies that would make it possible to analyse the privatisations in Portugal, according to Angolan news agency Angop.

“We have studied the programme that the troika negotiated with the Portuguese government in depth, we have studied the governing programme of the party that won the elections in depth and we have studied the privatisation programme that Portugal plans to carry out in a short space of time in depth,” said Feijó.

The prime minister of Sao Tome and Principe, who will be in Angola for three days, will be granted an audience with Angola’s President José Eduardo dos Santos, Thursday morning.

The programmes to be presented to President José Eduardo dos Santos will be those that, “may interest public or private Angolan companies, for the purpose of government coverage.” (macauhub)
