Diplomat highlights availability for cooperation in local government

Luanda – The Republic of Namibia is available to pass on to Angola its experience of 28 years of implementing local government so that the country can successfully carry out the process envisaged for 2020, said Wednesday in Luanda, the Namibian ambassador, Claudia Grace Uushona.

The diplomat stressed that the process of exchanging experiences was facilitated by the fact that a memorandum of understanding had been signed between the two governments for regular consultations in the areas of territorial administration.

The Namibian ambassador spoke to the press after saying goodbye to the speaker of the Angolan National Assembly, Fernando da Piedade Dias dos Santos, after eight years of work in the country.

With more than two million inhabitants, Namibia has been implementing local government since independence (21 March 1990).

It is her understanding that the implementation of municipalities in Angola will facilitate cooperation between the two neighboring countries, which have long sought to initiate agreements to strengthen cultural, traditional, economic and cultural ties.

The diplomat, who served an eight-year mission in Angola, highlighted the peace and calm that is taking place in the border area, considering one of the calmest frontiers of the African continent.
