Two African nations want to explore investment opportunities of common interest. Angola and Namibia are considering to hold an economic forum involving operators from both countries to do just this, reports ANGOP.
The goal of the conference would be to formulate business cooperation, especially in the industry of fisheries. The proposed meeting would come on the heels of a visit to Angola of a Namibian delegation headed by the minister of Fisheries and Marine Resources, Bernhard Esau in July.
A statement released at the end of the Namibian delegation’s visit to express the desire to signing of a cooperation accord in the domain of fisheries. Under the accord, there would be professional exchange, training, management, control and trade of marine resources.
“During the visit, the Namibian delegation met with Angolan staff of the sector, during which minister Vitória de Barros Neto and her colleague Bernhard Esau expressed the wish to strengthen cooperation and thus improve the living of the people from both countries,” reports ANGOP.
And they didn’t just stop at fisheries. Both sides realized the importance of scientific research, preservation and protection of resources, fight against illegal fishing and development of aquiculture.
