1st Angola industrial salon begins Thursday

19 November 2014

The 1st edition of ExpoIndústria, the Angolan industrial salon, opens its doors Thursday in Luanda for two days to publicise and improve the image of products “Made in Angola” according to the Ministry of Industry, the salon’s organiser.

The exhibition, which will be attended by 63 companies from 22 sectors, aims to promote Angolan manufacturing, exhibiting its skills and products, publicising what is produced in Angola and “thus serving to promote the national industrial sector.”

Alongside the exhibition, participants may attend discussions on the subject, particularly on the current situation of Angolan industry, the institutional role of government in supporting industrial enterprises and financing of industrial activity.

“Angolan Industrial Census (Ciang), which is in progress, is showing that domestic industrial output has grown at a higher than expected level, and it is therefore advisable to develop new initiatives that recognise this reality,” reads the promotional material released by the organisation.
