Luanda, Angola, 8 Sept – The Brazilian government plans to continue cooperating with Angola for its economic and social development and has reiterated that intention, the Brazilian ambassador to Angola said in Luanda Wednesday.

During a ceremony to mark the 189th anniversary of Brazil’s independence, ambassador Ana Lucy Petersen said that her country, “feels proud to have contributed to that development via Brazilian companies and professionals, in the context of national reconstruction, providing specialised engineering projects, infrastructures, energy, information technology, amongst other things.”

“We want to continue to be an integral part of the diversification of the Angolan economy, developing the essential segments side by side, whether they be human, energy, agricultural or industrial,” the diplomat noted, according to Angolan news agency Angop.

According to Petersen, Angola and Brazil have always had a privileged and increasingly close relationship, and said that the signing of the strategic partnership in 2010 had made it possible to work in a more coordinated and productive manner for the benefit of both countries. (macauhub)
