A business mission from the Chinese city of Shenzhen is due to visit Angola in December to make business contacts and launch development projects in the Luanda/Bengo Special Economic Zone, the Angolan ambassador to China said.
João Salvador dos Santos Neto, who recently visited that city in southern China, also said that the business mission “intends to strengthen cooperation in the areas of agriculture, fisheries, mines, infrastructure and civil aviation.”
The ambassador added that he was witnessing an increase in intentions by Chinese investors, which opened up excellent prospects for boosting Angolan industry.
Santos Neto’s visit to Shenzhen also served to meet with representatives of the Chamber of Commerce of this region, an institution with 1.7 million members of the various branches of business activity.
Known as a technological city for its constant innovation, the Angolan diplomat took advantage of the opportunity to meet with potential partners related to new technologies, energy and oil, who expressed their readiness to deepen economic relations with Angola.
Shenzhen is one of the largest and most important cities in China, located in the southern province of Guangdong, north of Hong Kong, and was the site where the country’s first special economic zone was established in 1979.
The statement issued by the Angolan Embassy in China recalled that last October five business groups from different provinces of China visited Angola and also expressed interest in investing in productive areas. (macauhub)
