The government of Angola has awarded contracts to two Chinese companies to strengthen water supply networks in the provinces of Kwanza Sul and Huambo, with a joint cost of US$223.5 million, according to presidential orders.

The first of these orders relates to the work of strengthening the Porto Amboim water supply system in the province of Kwanza Sul, amounting to US$60 million to be undertaken by the Angolan subsidiary of CGC Overseas Construction.

The Angolan affiliate of Sinohydro Construction was also awarded two contracts for two projects in Huambo province.

The two contracts are for the first and second lots of the second phase of construction of the Huambo city supply network, worth US$72.4 million and US$91.1 million, respectively.

These works and others agreed in recent weeks with Chinese companies are being financed through a credit facility set up by China in Angola’s favour in the amount of US$6 billion. (macauhub/AO/CN)
