Angola and Cape Verde want to resume flights and invest in the creation of a joint company

The resumption of direct flights between Angola and Cape Verde is one of the main challenges of bilateral relations, said Júlio Morais, Cape Verde's ambassador to Angola, who also defended the creation of a joint company aimed at exploring new routes aimed at West Africa, Europe as well as the North American market.

After Angola-Cape Verde air links were resumed, the diplomat argued that international airports should be further enhanced, as well as creating a joint company with a view to exploring new itineraries for markets such as West Africa, North America and Europe, writes Angop.

Still in the field of air transport, the ambassador recalled that, as a result of the partnership in force, Cape Verde operates on a rental basis with a TAAG plane.

Furthermore, Júlio Morais – who was speaking at the end of an audience with Luísa Damião, vice-president of the MPLA – stated that sustainable economic collaboration between the two countries was moving forward.

Among other aspects, he also said that a project in the field of agribusiness should also be resumed in Kibala, Cuanza Sul province, consisting of an area of approximately 7000 hectares, as it suits the progress preferences of Angola and Cape Verde, writes Angop.

The ambassador – who highlighted the existence of a huge community of Cape Verde with small and medium-sized businessmen in the agricultural, agri-business and agro-industrial sectors – pointed out that the challenges pass mainly through the economic sector, leading to the selection of certain projects that are capable of promoting others within the framework of south-south collaboration between countries with the same purposes.

He also highlighted Angola's investment in his country, which is considerable in the airline sector, as well as the fact that the African Investment Bank (BAI) and Unitel are present in the Cape Verdean market.

According to Júlio Morais, in the audience with Luísa Damião, she was informed about the program of celebrations for Amílcar Cabral's 100th birthday, which is celebrated on September 12th.

In addition to the Cape Verde ambassador to Angola, the vice-president of the MPLA also held meetings with the president of the Angola-Lebanon Chamber of Commerce, Mohamed Nasser, and the president of the Angola-France Bilateral Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Melquiades Kerlan.
