“I am confident that the event will not just contribute to a greater awareness about the current political and economic situation of Angola, but it also can strengthen the co-operation and relationship between the US and Angola”, he emphasised.


The Vice President assured that Angola has been experimenting a process of political and economic transformation which is consolidating the democratic institutions.

Manuel Vicente explained that the 2012 elections served to renew the legitimacy of the institutions of the governance of the state, as well as strengthen cohesion and national reconciliation.

“Angola is committed to speeding up its economic growth and diversification of the economy in a sustainable way”, he added.

He went on saying that the Angolan government is trying to implement measures that guarantee sustainable development, economic growth, population growth, employment and social justice, through equal opportunities for all citizens and fair distribution of the national revenue.

He also spoke about the implementation of an environmental policy which can guarantee well-being for the present and future generations.

With a view to achieving those goals, he said, the Angolan government has been working to implement a social and economic development programme for the 2013/2017 period.

He explained that that is a strategic programme which aims at increasing basic social services for the population, as well as diversifying the economy.

Manuel Vicente also mentioned the governmental policies intended to promote economic growth and investment, facilitating productive investment, particularly through stimulating the creation of small and medium enterprises.
