Paris – Angolan President of the Republic João Lourenço, accompanied by the first lady, Ana Dias Lourenço, left Paris (France) this Thursday morning back to Luanda.

In the French capital, the Angolan Head of State took part in the Summit on the Economy of Africa, an initiative of the French Government.

The event brought together dozens of African leaders and analyzed the relaunch of growth in African countries’ economies, based on the involvement of international partners and the creation of massive support.

At the meeting, Angola defended a change in the vaccine production strategy to combat Covid-19.

On the fringes of the summit, President João Lourenço held working meetings with counterparts in France Emmanuel Macron, South Africa Cyril Ramaphosa and with the Prime Minister of Portugal, António Costa.
