Angola wants Korean companies in the future Luanda Technology Park

17 October 2014

The Angolan Minister of Telecommunications and Information Technologies has said he wants to make use of the South Korea’s experience for the creation of the future Luanda Technology Park.

José Carvalho da Rocha, who spoke before leaving for Seoul, where he will take part in the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Conference, said he would invite South Korean companies to set themselves up in the park.

“South Korea is one of the leaders in the development of information and communication technologies. We will also take this opportunity to make our relationship closer, raising the awareness of companies linked to ICTs to set themselves up in Angola, to create jobs and transfer technology and knowledge,” he said.

According to the Minister of Telecommunications and Information Technologies, Angola intends to set up a number of companies from this segment in the Technology Park.

The Technology Park, in Luanda, will be completed in 2016 and companies will then be encouraged to set themselves up there. (macauhub/AO)
