During his visit to Luanda, Qin Gang will visit the Chinese embassy and diplomatic complex in Luanda today and on Friday he will visit Huawei's technology park, a gigantic structure made up of training and innovation centres, which cost 60 million euros of dollars and was inaugurated last year.
On Friday, he will meet President João Lourenço and his Foreign Affairs counterpart, Téte António, with whom he will assess bilateral relations, according to the planned programme.
Qin Gang began his tour of Africa in Ethiopia, which was also his first international visit. As well as Ethiopia and Angola, Qin, appointed as minister of Foreign Affairs on 31 December, will travel to Gabon and Benin.
The purpose of this trip, which will last until January 16, is to deepen the strategic partnership and cooperation between China and Africa.
Qin thus fulfills a 33-year-old tradition, according to which the head of Chinese diplomacy makes his first trip of the year abroad to Africa.
China has shown a growing interest in Africa, becoming the continent's biggest trading partner and is also Angola's.
Angola is the biggest debtor of Asians among African countries.
