He informed that in recent years, the relationship between the two countries has become a strategic partnership, ensuring that other steps will be taken to further strengthen this relationship. “Certainly, let’s go this way.”

“This helped us to leverage the cooperation of our two countries in all aspects of social life. Therefore, whether in the agricultural sector, whether in education, from defense to the economy, today we have important agreements (…)”.

He made it known that renowned Turkish firms are in contact with the Angolan government. “Therefore, at the beginning of the first half of this year, you will see the presence of large Turkish companies in Angola”.

According to the diplomat, the volume of trade with Angola, which is around US$340 billion, “is not yet in place”.

The Turkish diplomat, at the end of his mission in Angola, took the opportunity to speak with his interlocutor about the need to strengthen relations between the parliaments of both countries.

“Apart from government relations, the parliaments are the center of the voices of the peoples of the two countries, therefore, the two parliaments must collaborate closely”, he pointed out.
