Two border posts between Angola and DRC reopened

Two border posts between Angola and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) were reopened this Tuesday. At stake are the posts of Kimbata (Uíge) and Luau (Moxico), which opened about two years after they were closed due to covid-19.


At the Kimbata post, the ceremony was witnessed by José Carvalho da Rocha, governor of the province of Uíge and, on the DRC side, by representatives of the governor of the province of Baixo Congo.

In turn, the act at the Luau post was attended by Gonçalves Muandumba, governor of Moxico, and Tchinhama Mutombo, Congolese minister of Tourism and Development of Lualaba province.

Speaking at the ceremony, the governor of Uíge considered that the opening of the Kimbata border post will encourage trade between the two countries as well as bring the population of Angola and the DRC closer together.

Cited by Angop, José Carvalho da Rocha also admitted that relations between Angola and the DRC are long and close, hoping that this opening will bring mutual benefits to both.

"We took this opportunity to unite our people and do our business, and subsequently take equal advantage," he said.

On the DRC side, the representative of the Lower Congo governor admitted that this reopening marks an important milestone for trade relations between the two countries, writes Angop.

At the Luau post, the governor of Moxico also considered that the opening of that post will allow more exchange of products, strengthening the economy of Angola and the DRC.

Also quoted by Angop, Gonçalves Muandumba spoke of the need to "fine tune all security mechanisms" in order to combat illicit practices: "There is every need to tune all security mechanisms, so that there is a functional border, without encouraging smuggling ".

On the other side of the border, Tchinhama Mutombo indicated that the opening of this post translates into the fulfillment of requests from the population of both countries, predicting that this measure can help the economy of Angola and the DRC.
