The minister said so at the opening of the referred meeting, happening from 15 to 19 February and for the first time in Africa, with the support of UNESCO and hosted by the Angolan Ministries of Science and Technology, Higher Education and General Education.  

Maria Cândida Pereira Teixeira explained that the holding of this event in Luanda resulted from a technical, scientific and institutional co-operation agreement between UNESCO and the Angolan Executive, as well as the commitment and support of the Angolan Head of State, José Eduardo dos Santos.

According to the minister, this volume of African history is an international reference.

“The production of over ten thousand pages in eight volumes of the general history of Africa will help to retrieve African history and explain to the younger generations about who we are, where we come from, why we are here and where we are going”, said the minister.

The event, which is happening in the National Scientific Research Centre of the Architecture Faculty of the state-owned Agostinho Neto University (UAN), aims at collecting, assessing and validating scientific data relating to the general history of Africa.

The opening ceremony was chaired by the Vice President of the Republic, Manuel Domingos Vicente, and attended by various government officials, MPs, members of UNESCO’s Scientific Council, members of the diplomatic corps accredited in Angola, principals of public and private academic institutions, as well as deans of faculties, directors of scientific research institutions and scholars.
