As you can see, the Chinese are the big driving force behind this effort. In some of the photos one can even see chemical plants coming up, not sure what kind of chemicals will be produced there though, but nevertheless will be a big help for the local economy. Cheers.
Oh Yes, yes, the airport..really this project is kept so top secret although there are more and bigger projects in Angola that one can get informtion of but the airport is guarded like a princess...I am yearning to see the firt impressions.

As for the indutrial zone: really great stuff and very important for any country, hopefully big car assembly plants like BMW, Hyundai, MAN etc....this should be fostered by the government with full force.

Next should be also a a high-tech cluster alongside super modern high tech campuses and more colleges.

projects like these will hopefully see the light of day in the next decade or so.

But knowing where Luanda was just 7-8 years back and almost none of that existed...I can see a real driving force behind it. I love it and I love it even more because it is in Africa....it makes me proud to look at the pics, by being still fully aware that the road to a better future is still long and hilly.

Matthias, we are now in "cacimbo" season. It is pretty much like winter (African style), that's why the sky is always grey.

I know, my friend, but MDC Brown shot soooo many photos...I had to laugh when I read what you had to say...it is like you are invited to a party and the host is fully exhausted because he prepared all kinds of different & delicious food throughout the past days and then the guest say eagerly: "Oh thanks, but make sure to provide even more food"!
