Companies from China consider investments in Huíla province, Angola

10 August 2018

Angola’s ambassador to Angola, Cui Aimin, expressed interest in cooperating in tourism, especially in Huíla province, whose potential was highlighted for possible investments, speaking on Thursday in the city of Huíla.

On the sidelines of a private meeting with Governor Joao Marcelino Tyipinge, the diplomat said the visit to the province was intended to gather more information about the local economic situation, “as there are Chinese entities interested in investing in Huíla.”

The province in general and the city of Lubango in particular have potential for development, particularly in the tourism sector, said the ambassador, who also mentioned the agricultural sector as being attractive to Chinese investors.

Cui Aimin also told the Angop news agency that China could develop an area for large-scale rice planting, which will be associated with an industrial unit for processing the product, but stressed that the province has more potential for other agricultural products, in particular fruit, than for the planting of rice.
