China maintains its support for the industrialization of Angola

22 September 2015

China will continue to support the industrialisation of Angola under the current bilateral cooperation framework, the new Chinese ambassador to Angola, Cui Aiming, said Monday in Luanda.

The diplomat, who was speaking after delivering his credentials to President Eduardo dos Santos, said Angola was a very important country in Africa and “also an important partner for China,” according to Angolan news agency Angop.

Cui Aiming stressed that both Angola and China are currently going through a phase of transformation of their economies but gave assurances that this would in no way affect the fulfilment of existing cooperation programmes.

“From now on we will further strengthen our cooperation in various fields, with emphasis on agriculture, market services as well as training of personnel,” said the Chinese ambassador, who called for further promotion of mutual trust between Angola and China in the political arena. (macauhub/AO/CN)
