The Republic of India has expressed interest in cooperating with Angola in the field of health, particularly in the manufacture of generic drugs. The interest was expressed by the Ambassador of India, Pratibha Parkar, in an audience granted by the Minister of State for the Social Area, Dalva Ringote Allen.


Speaking to the press, the ambassador of India, Pratibha Parkar, made it known that her country, during the covid-19 pandemic, provided vaccines to more than 196 countries and intends to work with Angola in the manufacture of generic drugs.

“India has several programs in the social field, especially in the field of primary health services, in which it can cooperate with Angola, for example in the field of manufacturing generic drugs”, she explained.

Still in the field of health, Pratibha Parkar said that many people benefit from the medical tourism program that the country offers. “In this domain of health, we also talk about the medical tourism opportunities that India has. There are many citizens or tourists who go to India for health, through this health tourism program”, she said.

The meeting also served to inform the Minister of State for the Social Area that Angolans annually benefit from scholarships in the country's major universities.

“The meeting was very fruitful, because we also addressed another matter. We are talking about the issue of education and that annually India provides scholarships to several Angolan students. And these students, when they arrive in the country, study or do their degrees in large or prominent universities in various subjects”, she said.

The Indian ambassador also made it known that several members of the Government take short courses in technology matters in India.

On the same day, the Minister of State for the Social Area, Dalva Ringote, received, in audience, the extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassador of Côte d’Ivoire in Angola, Kadjané Pierre.

Kadjané Pierre made it known that Côte d'Ivoire has three ministries that deal with social aspects and intend to share experiences with Angola and find cooperation mechanisms between the two countries. “We have the same peoples, the same values and that is what we base ourselves on to have good cooperation between Africans”, she stressed.

The Minister of State and the ambassador of Côte d'Ivoire also spoke about the next Luanda Biennial, an event in which Côte d'Ivoire is invited to participate, exchange experiences on peace in Africa and the world, and deepen bilateral cooperation in domain of culture.

“Between our two countries, the most important thing is to favor culture. It is through culture that we meet to address all aspects of cooperation. This is how we do it in Côte d'Ivoire and we want to do it in Angola. We need to get to know Angola and Angola wants to get to know Côte d’Ivoire, so that we can develop true cooperation”, she said.

The minister also had a courtesy meeting with the UK ambassador, Roger Stringer.
