The Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Angola (CCCA) called on Chinese companies operating in the country to work more closely with local partners in order to deepen economic and trade cooperation between the two countries, Chinese state news agency Xinhua reported.
A statement from the CCCA, issued in Luanda on the occasion of the 9th anniversary of the creation of the chamber, urged Chinese companies to fulfil their social responsibilities in order to benefit both Angola and China.
CCCA reminded the Chinese companies operating in Angola that they must comply with the laws of the country, international standards and practices in terms of trade and the principles of fair competition whilst boycotting and fighting any kind of corruption in business.
The statement also called on the members of the chamber to guarantee and protect the legitimate interests of Chinese and Angolan workers so that they too can benefit from the development of their companies.
Xinhua said CCCA also asked that more attention be paid to environmental protection while promoting sustainable development projects that will benefit future generations in Angola.
Over 2,500 Chinese companies are established in Angola with a total of about 300,000 workers. (macauhub/CN/AO)
