Luanda, – The counsellor minister of the Argentina Embassy to Angola, Alfredo Gabriel Rullán, Thursday in Luanda, assured that his country will double the volume of  business, in  coming years in Angola, currently estimated at Usd 200 million.

"Business volume before the opening of our embassy in Angola is set at between Usd 200 and  250 million per year and we want to increment it", he said to Angop, during a meeting with Argentinean businessmen from the provinces of Entre Rios, aimed at outlining strategies to enter the Angolan market.

According to the source,  the embassy receives, nowadays, a great quantity of Argentinean  businessmen travelling to Angola for the first time, as the Latin American capacity and potential in agriculture might be transferred to Angola and enable training of partners from
local companies.

He announced that the Argentinean deputy minister of Trade will be travelling to Angola next  year, to strengthen bilateral relations aimed at boosting business for  both countries.

The diplomat said Argentina is a country with a history of development, farm technology and  social industry in the consolidated production scenario, adding that the purpose is not only that  of selling finished products, but also transferring and sharing experiences in order to give  power and transform Angolan products in consumer goods.

The source said that the idea is to bring Argentinean businesspeople into Angola and  vice-versa, and improve trade. “Nowadays we buy few products from Angola. We want to  buy more. This is one of the objectives for 2011”, he stressed.
