ANGOLAN EXPORT PROMOTION AGENCY URGED TO PRIORITISE EXPORT DIVERSIFICATION

LUANDA, Angolan Trade Minister Fiel Domingos Constantino has urged the country’s Investment and Exports Promotion Agency (APIEX) to prioritise the promotion and diversification of export items and sources of foreign exchange earnings.

Speaking to journalists after a swearing-in ceremony of the new members of the Board of Directors of APIEX here Wednesday, he said a commitment by the agency to attract more investment would help the country’s productive sector to place its products in the international market.

Fiel Constantino, who added that APIEX must reinforce the support for national entrepreneurs to enable Angolan products to compete in international markets, also stressed the need to broaden co-operation with its foreign counterparts to meet the demands of export markets.

The new chief executive officer of APIEX, Belarmino Gomes da Rocha Van-DA�nem, pledged his team’s commitment to achieve the agency’s goals.
