The Tony Blair Institute for Global Change announced today that it wants to work with the Angolan Government following the ongoing reforms in the country.
"Angola is a very important country in the African context. My institute has been working with several African countries, but not with Angola. So we had this first meeting with President João Lourenço to talk about the steps that have been taken, especially with regard to the ongoing changes," Tony Blair said after today's meeting (Dec 2) with Angola's President João Lourenço.
The former British prime minister said that the changes set in motion by João Lourenço are "impressive but necessary."
Commenting on the partnership he wants to build with the Angolan government, the leader of the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change said that his mission is "to cooperate with governments that are implementing reforms."
Regarding the Africa Investment Summit, which will be held on January 20, 2020, in London - and to which João Lourenço has been officially invited - Tony Blair said that the event is "quite important" for African countries in terms of business and investments.
