Postal codes to be introduced this year in Angola

1 February 2018

Postal Codes (Código de Endereçamento Postal – CEP) will be introduced this year in Angola, “even if it is only in the city of Luanda,” the chair of postal company Correios de Angola, Maria Luísa Andrade, said on Monday.

Andrade said a commission had already been set up between the company itself and the Ministry of Land Management, “which is working to make the CEP come into force this year, which will facilitate delivery, sending and receiving,” letters and parcels.

Andrade also said that, in addition to the introduction of the postal code, the major focus for 2018 will be installing postal services in every town in Angola, adding that of the 33 projects included in the company’s master plan the three main ones are being carried out with its “own resources.”

“Since 2015 we have not received any financial aid for our projects, what we have been doing is with our own resources and there has been some restraint within our operability to develop some projects,” he said.

The provision of postal financial services, an express delivery service and the identification and sale of the assets assigned to Correios de Angola are among the state company’s structural plans, according to Andrade. (macauhub)
