In terms of the total budget, the person responsible – cited by Angop – said that the project is valued at 245 million euros, 40 percent of which is the responsibility of UK Export Finance, 35 percent is under the responsibility of the Government and the remaining 25 percent corresponds to other partners.

At the beginning of this week, namely on Monday, a delegation of senior officials from UK Export Finance visited the province of Cabinda, where they checked the progress of work on the future Cabinda International Airport and from the Deep Water Terminal in Caio, from the Port of Cabinda.

Quoted in a statement from the Provincial Government of Cabinda, to which VerAngola had access, Simon Bunckenburg, business manager at UK Export Finance, "confirmed that, after the Cabinda General Hospital – Ervanário José Luís Sambo, the future Cabinda International Airport is the second project in the province, financed by UKEF, having assessed the visit as positive".

Mara Quiosa, governor of Cabinda, considered that the presence of the United Kingdom delegation in the province "contributes to reinforcing the credibility of the work already done" at the future airport.

According to the statement, demining work and environmental studies at the site of the new airport, in the town of Sassa-Zau, commune of Malembo, municipality of Cabinda, have already been completed.

"The work implemented in an area of 860 hectares, lasting 48 months, valued at 245 million euros, is expected to generate 1500 jobs, is under the responsibility of the company OEC, Odebrecht Engenharia & Construção, and includes: control tower, fire station, police building, 'GSE-Ground Support Equipment', cargo terminal, passenger terminal, a runway 3500 meters long and 45 meters wide, among other services", the note also reads.

According to Angop, the provision of more than 90 million euros by UK Export Finance should take place in the next few days.

The British delegation, according to the provincial government's note, was made up of Simon Bunckenburg, Taiyan Lee, economic consultant and head of the Risk Department for Asia, Southern and Eastern Africa, Andrew Keep, evaluator for Civil Construction, Infrastructure and Structure and Energy, Michael Brown, Country Risk Economist, and Dirk van den Berg, Head of Export Finance for Southern Africa.
