Speaking to the press at Luanda’s “04 de Fevereiro” International Airport, the head of the Students’ Support of the Angolan embassy in Cuba, Zé Maria Boyote, said the training results from the agreement between the Angolan and Cuban governments and both countries’ excellent friendly and cooperation relations.

According to him, the newly trained students, who came from several provinces of the country, are prepared to contribute to the socioeconomic development of Angola.

In his turn, the head of the Scholarship Department of the National Institute of Scholarship Management (INAGBE), Milton Chivela, explained that more than 2200 Angolan students are studying in several Cuban universities and higher education institutes. 

He underscored that the Ministry of Higher Education is making efforts with other ministerial departments, with view to integrating the newly graduated students in the labour market.

“We are cooperating with several ministries with objective of integrating the newly trained scholarship holders in the work market. The expectation is that they do not stay unemployed for long time and thus value the efforts made by the Angolan government”, he said. 

However, he explained that the INAGBE has sent scholarship holders to varied countries all over the world mainly in Russia, Portugal, China, Romania and Hungary, under the cooperation agreement between Angola and these nations.
