Angola, Peru discuss bilateral relations
Lima, Lima – Delegations of Angola and Peru Thursday in Lima held talks to reinforce the relations between the two countries and stress the need to finalise a General Techno-scientific and Cultural Cooperation Accord that governs existing agreements in higher education, mining, energy, agriculture, fisheries, textile industry, culture and social communication. The Angolan team to the talks was headed by ambassador to Peru, Nelson Cosme, while the host delegation was under the director for Africa, Middle East and Gulf countries of the local Foreign Ministry, fellow-ambassador Carlos Zapata Lopez. The parties agreed to exchange documents and work under a short, medium and long term schedule, to implement intentions expressed at Thursday’s meeting and on previous occasions between the two countries. According to World Bank data, Peru is the best Latin American country for investments, only second to Chile. It leads the region’s economic growth with a 6 percent rate, and a controlled inflation of about 2,5 percent. Peru is Latin America’s top producer of gold, zinc and silver and intends to offer its experience in digital inclusion programmes and fight against poverty to Angola.
