The most important agreements, on the Portuguese side, were signed by the Ministers of Finance, Fernando Medina, and by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, João Gomes Cravinho, respectively: an increase in the business credit line from 1.5 billion euros to two thousand millions of euros; and the Strategic Cooperation Program (PEC) 2023/2027.

The agreements covered an agreement between the ports of Sines and Algarve and the Sociedade de Desenvolvimento da Barra do Dande and, among other areas, training and laboratory support for food safety – a memorandum that involves criminal investigation in this area.

Agência Lusa signed a training protocol with the Angolan Journalists Training Centre.

In statements to journalists, the Portuguese Prime Minister said that the number of 13 agreements had been reached, because in recent days Caixa Geral de Depósitos closed three financing contracts.

In this ceremony, in the economic sphere, the executives of Lisbon and Luanda signed agreements on cooperation in terms of sea policies and between the Ministry of Telecommunications and Information Technologies of Angola and the Portuguese Space Agency "Portugal Space".

Before António Costa and João Lourenço, the Portuguese Quality Institute signed a cooperation agreement with its Angolan counterpart, which includes "a license to use the Portuguese version of European standards".
