Angola bets on insertion of staff in international organisations

  • TÉTE ANTÓNIO, MINISTRO DAS RELAÇÕES EXTERIORES
Luanda - The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Téte António, Thursday said that the creation of the Diplomatic Academy "Venâncio de Moura" is another bet of Angola to integrate national staff in international organizations.

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the Diplomatic Academy "Venâncio de Moura", Téte António underlined that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is working to support national citizens who want to join international organizations.

The Angolan top diplomat stressed that the perspective of the newly unveiled academy inaugurated today by the President of the Republic, João Lourenço, with a curricular content focused on diplomacy and international relations is to integrate more Angolans in international organizations.

According to the minister, the initiative meets the country's bet to have  national staff in the international public service, who can play a fundamental role in the processes in which the Angolan state is engaged.

In his opinion, each Angolan placed in an international organization is also an ambassador of the country.

Angola has Ambassadors Gilberto Veríssimo and Georges Chikoti as President of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) and Secretary General of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Organization (ACP), respectively, in addition to other staff in the United Nations, the African Union and the Southern African Development Community (SADC), among other international institutions.

Regarding the academy, he stressed that it will not only dedicate itself to the training of staff, but also to scientific research on "complex issues of international news, through the production of analysis".

Located in the centrality of Kilamba, in Luanda, the fully equipped academic institution has 29 classrooms, and its construction budgeted at 16 million U.S. dollars, a donation from the Government of the People's Republic of China in the scope of cooperation between the two countries.

The academy, whose work was executed in 19 months, includes nine buildings built in an area of four hectares, including computer labs (with 28 computers each) and language labs (for 25 students each) and consular practice and protocol and ceremonial rooms.

It also has a library, dormitories for teachers (with 23 suites) and for students (with 78 suites), sized to accommodate up to 234 students.

The complex has a field for the practice of indoor sports, a tennis court, a gymnasium, auditorium and administrative and service buildings, which hosts high and medium voltage power distribution rooms, generators and a bank branch.

It also hosts a medical post, a canteen with capacity for 290 people, two protocol rooms, an industrial kitchen and two parking lots for 128 cars.
