13-15 April 2016 – PIA meetings in Luanda
The PIA executives visited Angola in April 2016, where they held high level meetings with the Angolan Government and international institutions.
The recent collapse of the oil price has had a major impact on the Angolan economy. The Angolan Government provided insights into their strategies and priorities about diversifying the economy and reducing dependency on imports. This includes stimulating private sector investment, taxation reform and increasing local production and trade. The Angolan Government expressed a willingness to work with the private sector and are motivated to engage in ongoing dialogue and to support value adding projects.
