The chairman of the Japan-Angola Friendship Parliamentary Committee, Yoshitaka Sakuranda said on Tuesday in Luanda that Japan is available to provide modern-day Angola with technology to develop the country’s agricultural sector.
During a meeting with the president of the National Assembly, Fernando da Piedade Dias dos Santos, the Japanese official said Japan intends to support increased productivity and through agriculture contribute to the process of economic diversification of Angola.
Yoshitaka Sakuranda said that agriculture is still the main area of cooperation between the two countries, and restated a wish to extend this cooperation.
Angola and Japan established diplomatic relations in 1976 and exchanges of high-level visits between the two countries began in the 1980s.
Japan has carried out a number of projects in Angola in areas such as demining, infrastructure, energy, agriculture, education and health.
Angola imports cars, machinery and steel products from Japan and mainly exports oil. (macauhub)
