The person in charge – who held a meeting this Tuesday with Lello Francisco, president of the Board of Directors (PCA) of the Angolan Private Investment and Export Promotion Agency (AIPEX) – said that the capital to be invested will be made with own resources in order to help materialize the ambition of concrete digital transformation in the country, writes Angop.
Speaking at the end of the hearing, Robert Mullins said that among the intentions is the creation of "a network of these data centers across" Africa. "We intend to create a network of these data centers across the African continent. Angola is a country that is developing and has a great need for digital services. We believe that digital infrastructure is fundamental to continue the good development of the country", he stated, quoted to Angop.
Lello Francisco took the opportunity to clarify that the Raxio Group wants to build, in the coming months, a state-of-the-art data processing center, which will play a relevant role in the digitalization process of the economy, writes Angop.
Thus, he said that the project "will contribute to improving services for companies that today still need to have their data stored abroad", adding that companies will start to rely on the center in the next 13 months.
The first stone is laid this Wednesday. According to Angop, the center will be built in Luanda, in the municipality of Cacuaco, and should generate around 50 jobs (direct and indirect).
