EU validates eight proposals from Angolan institutions within the scope of the Dialogue Facility

Eight public institutions and the European Union (EU) in Angola signed this Thursday agreements budgeted at 300,000 euros, within the scope of the EU-Angola Dialogue Facility project, framed in the Joint Path Agreement, to be implemented by April 2024.


Technical assistance for the realization of the EU-Angola Dialogue Facility received 44 applications, in the framework of the third call for proposals in all priority areas of the Joint Pathway Agreement, and only eight were eligible.

"Financing policies and practices for global, ethical, innovative and relevant science and technology: dialogues between Angola, Mozambique and Portugal" was one of the proposals, drawn up by the Angolan Foundation for Scientific and Technological Development (Fundecit) and by the Foundation for Portuguese Science and Technology (FCT).

"Exchange of experiences for monitoring the development of human capital", proposed by the Technical Management Unit of the National Plan for Training of Staff in Angola and by the Competence Center for Policy Planning and Prospective Public Administration (PlanAPP), was also validated.

Also approved were the proposals of the government of the province of Luanda and the Association of Municipalities for the Sustainable Management of Waste in Greater Porto on solid waste management and international best practices for the preparation and organization of business missions, prepared by AIPEX - Agência de Private Investment and Export Promotion and AICEP.

The managing body also considered eligible the proposals of the Competition Regulatory Agency of Angola and of the Competition Authority of Portugal versed in technical training in the conduct of sanctioning processes for restrictive practices of competition.

Exchange of experiences on national development planning and evaluation of public policies, proposed by the Angolan Ministry of Economy and Planning and PlanAPP, norms for approval and homologation of brands and models of railway equipment, between counterparts in Angola and Portugal, and homemade solar systems, by the Angolan Ministry of Energy and Water and Lusophone Association of Renewable Energies were also validated.

Representatives of the eight Angolan institutions, whose proposals were validated, signed, in Luanda, the implementation agreements for the action, which should last until April 2024.

The EU-Angola Dialogue Facility is a project financed by the 11th European Development Fund with 4 million euros, which runs between 2020 and 2024.

The project's steering committee is made up of the ministries of Economy and Planning and of Foreign Affairs of Angola and the delegation of the European Union in Angola.

The European Union ambassador to Angola, Jeannette Seppen, pointed out, at the opening of the meeting, that the EU-Angola Dialogue Facility supports actions by Angolan and European institutions that deepen political dialogue and promote the exchange of knowledge and good practices in different areas.

The national director for Integration, Cooperation and International Business at the Ministry of Economy and Planning, Jerónimo Pongolola, underlined that "important areas that define the current moment of policies established by the Government of Angola" are incorporated in the signed proposals.

"As well as the future that is intended for the country and, therefore, it is with immense satisfaction that we have the support of the European Union in this path that is the joint path", she stressed.

The director of Cooperation and Europe at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Cuandina de Carvalho, hopes that the results to be implemented, within the framework of the actions, are as expected.

"We encourage the Angolan proponents and hope that these projects will be consistent and that they will allow the implementation of the established programs and be reflected in the PDN [National Development Plan] and in the long-term development strategy of 2050", pointed out the Angolan ambassador.

Peace and security, good governance and human rights, energy, transport, science and technology and education are some of the priority thematic areas of the Angola-EU Joint Pathway Agreement signed in 2012.
