Angola and China assessed this Wednesday, in Luanda, the state of bilateral cooperation, focusing on the economic domain.
The matter was discussed during a hearing between the president of the Commission on Foreign Relations, International Cooperation and Angolan Communities Abroad, Josefina Pitra Diakite, and the Chinese ambassador to Angola, Gong Tao.
According to the Chinese ambassador, Gong Tao, who spoke to the press at the end of the meeting, relations between the two states “are excellent”.
The diplomat reaffirmed the interest of Chinese businessmen in continuing to invest in Angola, particularly in sectors such as agriculture and fisheries.
“Angola has presented positive perspectives, for this reason several Chinese businessmen are thinking of investing more in the areas of industry, agriculture and fisheries, in order to increase national production and contribute to the promotion of employment”, he maintained.
Since 2007, Angola has been China’s largest trading partner in Africa, with a turnover that registered, in 2010 alone, a total of US $ 24.8 billion.
