Entrepreneurs create Community of Angolan Exporters and Internationalised Companies

19 November 2013

Angolan entrepreneurs have set up a Community of Angolan Exporters and Internationalised Companies (CEEIA) to support the internationalisation of Angolan products and services, said the institution’s chairman, Agostinho Kapaia.

The birth of the CEEIA will help enhance the productive capacity of Angolan businesses and make more opportunities available for all operators, he said.

Kapaia said that to meet those objectives the CEEIA would certify product quality and origin, provide information from testing and analysis, offer “specialised accompaniment and appropriate training” to members and intermediate in bureaucratic processes associated to internationalisation.

Sol magazine reported that companies such as Refriango, Vidrul, Angonabeiro, Banco Privado Atlântico and Miracel are among the CEEIA’s 19 founding members

The 2013-2017 National Development Plan set a 23 percent target for the average growth of non-oil exports, currently concentrated in coffee, wood, diamonds and ornamental stone. (macauhub)
