China will support the development of Angola in agriculture, industry and training of human resources, promised the Chinese ambassador to Angola, Cui Aimin at the end of a visit to the Camaniangala agro-industrial project in Moxico province.
“We want to deepen cooperation with Angola, to help diversify the country’s economy and help it to face the current financial crisis, due to the fall in oil prices on the international market,” said the Chinese ambassador, according to Angolan news agency Angop.
Cui Aimin noted that China has decided to extend cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture to boost production of corn and soy, as the project also benefits consumers in the provinces of Lunda Sul, Malanje, Lunda Norte and Luanda.
The Director of Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries of the eastern Moxico province, António da Silva, said that the agro-industrial project ensures the food self-sufficiency of rural families in the region.
The Camaiangala Agro-Industrial Project, located 20 kilometres north of the city of Camanongue, this month started selling corn flour, soy and beans in the markets of Luena (Moxico), Lunda Sul and Lunda Norte. (macauhub/AO/CN)
