France to invest in Angola women’s basketball

  • Minister Ana Paula de Sacramento Neto receives French ambassador in an audience
Luanda - France intends to invest 700,000 Euros, in two years, for the expansion of women’s basketball in Angola, the French ambassador in Angola, Daniel Vosgien, told the press.

Speaking to the press, after an audience on Wednesday, in Luanda, with the Minister of Youth and Sports, Ana Paula do Sacramento Neto, the diplomat revealed interest in supporting the work developed by the sector in the scope of women empowerment.

The Angolan minister showed total openness to work with the French government and expects the ambassador to formalize the intention with the Angolan government, for later materialization of the agreement.

In Angola, women's basketball needs more investment especially regarding its dissemination throughout the country.

Despite being two-time African champions, with a generation of athletes, most of whom are already inactive, women's basketball still needs to increase the number of teams competing in the country.

Interclube and 1º de Agosto are the most prominent teams alternating between provincial, national, and African trophies.
