Angola’s ANIP and FIL set up company to promote the country

26 June 2013

Angola’s National Agency for Private Investment (ANIP) and the Luanda International Fair (FIL) have set up international business centre company Centro Internacional de Negócios (Anfil) to promote the Angolan market and promote business missions abroad, Angolan news agency Angop reported.

According to Angop, Anfil is also tasked with supporting foreign investors in the investment process, carrying out conferences, seminars and working meetings as well as providing services.

The Minister for Justice and Human Rights, Rui Mangueira, who attended the ceremony, also mentioned promotion of national potential as a way of attracting investments, support for partnerships between national and foreign businesspeople as well as helping them create a company in 24 hours.

The chairman of FIL, Matos Cardoso, said that the centre would provide important support to companies that want to invest in Angola, as it would offer a number of public services including issuing commercial and industrial development licenses.

Matos Cardoso also said that the new company would complement FIL’s fair activities, particularly for exhibitors that are taking part for the first time and don’t have a viable partner in the sectors in which they operate.

The Angola International Business Centre operates in the same complex as the Coqueiros Single Business Office (Guichê Único da Empresa dos Coqueiros), which was inaugurated Tuesday. (macauhub)
