Cited this Wednesday by Jornal de Angola, Tulinabo Mushingi, who spoke to journalists after an audience with the President of the Republic, João Lourenço, on Tuesday, in Luanda, said that the country has been following the Angolan electoral process for a long time, for which it has provided "modest financial support".

The diplomat indicated that the funds will be channeled to promote political tolerance and acceptance of the rules of the game by competitors, so that "at the end of the election, winners and losers remember that they are all children of the same country."

At the meeting, adds the same newspaper, details regarding the holding of the US-Africa summit, to be held in Washington, from 13 to 15 December this year, were also evaluated.

The summit, recently announced by US President Joe Biden, aims to bring African and US leaders to the same table to discuss issues of common interest and strengthen relations.

According to Tulinabo Mushingi, "the event will not only be what the United States wants to discuss, but what Africans want to discuss, especially how to continue advancing with partnerships, towards progress on both sides".

The ambassador of the United States of America stated that he had also evaluated with the President of the Republic the possibility of 16 new North American companies investing in the country, in different economic sectors.

The diplomat referred that the amount of two billion dollars, announced by President Joe Biden, to support renewable energy projects in several Angolan regions, is already being implemented through the North American company Sun Africa, which, in a consortium with Portuguese MCA, is building the first photovoltaic power stations in the country, namely those of Biópio and Baía Farta, in the province of Benguela, which were recently inaugurated.

He also evaluated positively the reforms implemented in Angola over the last five years, writes Jornal de Angola.

"I have been in Angola for four months, and I have already seen that there are some signs of positive results in the reforms that the Angolan Government started to implement in a few years", he said, stressing that "only those who do not want to see it".
