Speaking to the press, after an hour-long meeting with the provincial governor Rui Falcão, the diplomat, who is visiting Benguela for the first time, said that the success of this fight will serve as a “gateway” to investments by US companies.

Nina Maria Fite noted that US companies are closely following the anti-corruption process in Angola, as they often invest in free, fair and transparent business environments.

Trading between the two countries reached US $ 3.4 billion at the end of 2017, with Angola exporting products valued at US $ 2.6 billion and the United States of America around US $ 800 million.
