France wants to take advantage of agricultural investment opportunities in Angola

The French ambassador to Angola, Daniel Vosgien said this Thursday that the presence of French businessmen in Luanda demonstrates his country's "commitment" to taking advantage of investment opportunities, especially in the agricultural and agri-food sectors.


The French diplomat referred that his country has a vast experience in the agricultural sector and many companies, with international experience, are determined to establish partnerships with Angolan companies linked to agricultural production.

"The presence of these actors here demonstrates that they are already going to take advantage of opportunities to invest in Angola, several actors are committed to agricultural production in Africa, but also in Angola, it is essential that they become aware of the existing opportunities and the willingness of the authorities to engage in a real bilateral partnership in this sector", he said.

Daniel Vosgien, who was speaking at the opening of the Angola and France Economic Forum, which discusses partnerships in the agricultural and agri-food sector, as part of the French President's State visit to Angola, admitted that the French can exploit the agricultural potential of the African country.

"I salute the commitment of all the Angolan and French companies present, the success of this forum due to the number of participants and the quality of the participants, clearly demonstrates the ambition shared between the two countries and to reinforce the partnership between France and Angola and also economic and commercial links", he highlighted.

The launch of the production partnership between France and Angola in the agricultural and agri-food sector is the motto of the forum, which brings together Angolan and French businessmen, which ends on Friday with a speech by Emmanuel Macron.

According to Daniel Vosgien, the agricultural and agri-food sector are key sectors in which Angola and France can work together, "reinforcing" the diversification of the Angolan economy and stimulating "development opportunities for French companies".

The alignment of an inventory of Angola's opportunities and needs in terms of agriculture should constitute, in the opinion of the French diplomat, one of the main objectives of the meeting.

"It is an opportunity for Angolan companies to present to their subsidiaries what are the priority needs of this focus on partnership, Angolan companies can identify together the opportunities for partnership and also take stock of the constraints in the development of projects", he stressed.

The main objective of the forum "is also to present proposals in the French private sector in response to the needs of the Angolan side and the development of agricultural branches in Angola and to value partnerships with valid and priority interlocutors for Angola", concluded the French diplomat.

Emmanuel Macron, who arrived in Angola on Thursday night, is due to speak on Friday at the closing of this forum before meeting his Angolan counterpart, João Lourenço.
