Service to assist Chinese companies and citizens set up in Luanda, Angola

11 March 2014

The Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Angola has set up in Luanda a service centre to provide legal and linguistic assistance to the increasing number of Chinese companies and citizens in Angola, China Radio International (CRI) reported in Beijing.

At the moment there are at least 500 Chinese companies operating in Angola and over 100,000 Chinese citizens working on reconstruction projects,” the CRI website said citing Chinese news agency Xinhua.

Setting up service centres is important because of the “huge challenges and difficulties” that occur due to a lack of knowledge about Angolan legislation and “cultural difference” between the two countries, according to the secretary general of the Chamber of Commerce Zhao Hongbing. (macauhub)
