Chinese companies to build infrastructure in three Angolan provinces

28 January 2016

The government of Angola opened on Wednesday, a public tender for Chinese companies to build infrastructure in the provinces of Luanda and Bié under the financial cooperation agreement signed with the China Development Bank, to fund Priority Public Investment Projects.

The work will be carried out in Cacuaco (Luanda), Cuito and Cunje (Bié) and in the city of Uige.

One of the clauses of the public tender requires that Chinese companies outsource Angolan companies to perform at least 20 percent of the value of the work.

Competing companies require “experience in contracts as a contractor, subcontractor or contract manager and works of a similar nature and complexity to this contract in the past decade,” according to the regulations.

The government of Angola announced earlier this month it would open tenders for Chinese companies to compete for infrastructure projects in the development hubs of Menongue (Kuando Kubango), Malanje, Dondo (Kwanza Norte), Soyo (Zaire), Caala ( Huambo), Negage (Uíge) and Porto Amboim (Kwanza Sul).
