19 December 2013

China is set to provide Angola with a donation of 200 million yuan (US$32 million) to be used for reconstruction of Luanda General Hospital, under the terms of an economic and technical cooperation agreement signed Wednesday in the Angolan capital.

Angola’s Secretary of state of Foreign Relations and Cooperation, Ângela Bragança, said that the agreement signed by her and the Chinese ambassador in Angola, Gao Kexiang, “is another step in consolidating the two-way strategic partnership, which is already excellent.”

“There is the Luanda General Hospital project, which is in its finishing stages, and at this time the focus is on equipping it,” she said.

Bragança said that the Chinese side had recently confirmed financial support to build the Institute for International Relations, “amongst other activities that are part of the Forum Macau initiative.”

The Chinese ambassador, in his turn, said that the aid now being provided also covered construction of a primary school in Huambo province and an agricultural centre in Luanda. (macauhub)
