Angola reiterates commitment to economic diplomacy


Angola's focus on economic diplomacy and foreign policy in recent years has allowed it to improve the country's image and attract investment in various areas, said the Foreign Affairs minister Téte António on Wednesday.

Téte António was speaking on the sidelines of the 2nd edition of the International Fair of Embassies and Cooperation.

In his speech, the official said that the results are visible, adding that "we need to believe in the economic diplomacy that the Government is carrying out and not be pessimistic, especially Afro-pessimistic". .

According to Téte António, some segments, mainly national, are following the progress of Angola from a distance and do not have the real scope of projecting the country's image and the benefits it brings.

As for the fair, the minister said it was yet another stage to present Angola's potential to international partners, with particular emphasis on small entrepreneurs.

“We need to connect and support initiatives that move forward, for that we have to believe in the country, we need to transform our history into success”, said the official.

In turn, the president of the Núcleo Positivo Association (ANUP), Geraldo Muquico, organizer of the fair, said that the objective is to contribute to the economic diplomacy the country is developing and, together with diplomatic representations, seeking to attract investment.

The exhibition takes place from the 21st to the 23rd of the current month, under the motto "the contribution of diplomatic missions in promoting the image of Angola abroad".

The event gathers embassies accredited in Angola and more than 42 exhibitors
