Luanda – The Angola Press Agency (ANGOP-E.P) has replaced its portal with a new one that offers a wider range of services and a greater interaction with the users.

 

Among its new services, Angola’s only news agency offers live transmission of streaming media content.

According to ANGOP CEO, Josué Isaías, the new portal offers a classified advert service, available on a subscription basis.

"We want to mark the celebrations with the launch of the new portal, which entails more responsibility, opening a larger space for the supply of more services to its users, like news, reporting, interviews, videos, photos, with a bigger search possibilities and open to the social media,” said the CEO.

In addition to the purely journalistic contents, the new portal enables its users to follow more detailed weather and currency exchange information.

It also enables users to follow real time information on the financial markets, particularly concerning crude oil prices.

Josué Isaías also said Angop is currently going through a technical and social transformation, seeking to improve the workers’ social living condition and the quality of the products offered to its public.

ANGOP was established in July 1975, then called Agência Nacional Angola Press (ANAP). At the time, its services were distributed in the form of bulletin.

In October the same year, ANGOP adopted its current designation, Agência Angola Press, following a suggestion from then President António Agostinho Neto, and released, on 30 October, its first issue under the new sigla.

Three years afterwards, on 2 February 1978, the agency turned into a State-owned social communication organ, following the gazetting of the Presidential Decree 11/78, of 2 February.

That sets the bases for the agency’s development that led to its flourishing days in the 1980’s.  

Then, ANGOP had a manpower of 300 workers, mostly journalists, operating 24 hours a day, in the country and abroad, with five delegations (Portugal, Brazil, UK, Zimbabwe and Congo).

In 2013, the agency entered an era of technological and human resources transformation, in line with the modernity of the telecommunication and social communication means, which helped attain its big challenge and dream, that of becoming a great multimedia company.
