Brazil privileges commercial relationship with Angola

Luanda – The Federative Republic of Brazil will continue to privilege the economic and commercial relationship with Angola, a country with which it has strong historical and cultural ties.

Speaking to journalists in Luanda, Brazil’s ambassador to Angola, Paulino de Carvalho Neto, said that the president-elect (Jair Bolsonaro), who will take office on January 1, 2019, will continue to privilege intense economic and commercial relations with Angola.

According to the diplomat, who spoke on Monday about the elections in Brazil and the cooperation with Angola, from the unofficial point of view this cooperation is reinforced by the Brazilian communities in Angola and Angolans in Brazil.

The ambassador stressed that the two communities contribute to the creation of wealth in both countries.

According to Paulino de Carvalho Neto, the president-elect of Brazil should adopt a liberal economic policy in which he will privilege private initiative and investments in the private sector.

Jair Bolsonaro, of the Social Liberal Party (PSL), was elected last Sunday October 28, becoming the 38th president of the first country in the world to recognize the independence of Angola, proclaimed on September 11, 1975.

The new Brazilian Head of State was elected with 55.1% of the votes, against 44.9% of Fernando Haddad, of the Labor Party (PT).
