Right now, the government is pouring billions of Dollars into rebuilding infrastructure that was previously destroyed like: Highways, Roads, Railroads, etc., and there is also a system of buses already in place. The trains that were previously destroyed, have been mostly rebuilt in Luanda, and they are getting impressive ridership, but I hope in the coming months, there will be a proposal for a Metro or something to alleviate more traffic. Visit the National Reconstruction thread if you want to keep yourself updated on the process.

9/19/08 6:51 PM

Works

Luanda - A total of three thousand apartments spread over 50 buildings will be constructed from the next week, within the residential complex "Lar do Patriota", in Luanda, an investment budget of two billion U.S. dollars.

In declarations to Angop, on the sidelines of the act that marked the launch of construction of buildings in an area of 800 square meters (80 hectares), the chairman of the cooperative, Antonio da Silva said the project includes the construction of a center gimnodesportivo, a of six star hotel, a shopping center (with shopping center with 80,000 square meters), center cultural and a residential area.

It argues that in the project area is also planned the construction of buildings with 10 to 25 floors and apartments of the type T1, T2 and T3, with one, two and three quarters respectively.

To join the houses built by the cooperative, young people concerned must be included in the Ministry of Youth and Sports (MJD) "Angola Jovem", which owns, initially, at least 200 homes.

As a second option to inform young people in the offices of "Lar do Patriota", in Luanda, to make contact with other forms of access.

The value for the purchase of a residence, he argued, the party, ranging from $100,000 and 250,000 U.S. dollars, while its real value in the market around USD $1,000,000 paid through bank.

On the other hand, said the chairman of the cooperative, is also built a green area with golf course and houses of high standard, a length of 600 hectares.

The choice of places of high standard, initially, said Antonio da Silva, is due to the fact that with the outcome of its success be able to finance the construction of other projects of low income.

Under its program of action, the cooperative provides implement projects of its kind in any country, starting by the provinces of Benguela, Huila and Huambo.

To mark the beginning of buildings were present members of the cooperative, the Ministry of Public Works, business Luata intended to electricity, SD (water and sanitation), Imotrade (golf course and houses of high standard) and MetroEuropa (bridges and floor).

This is pretty impressive! Nice to see encouraging pictures out of Africa. Is there a large Chinese business presence in the country, by any chance? And what sort of Portuguese investment is going on?

Your Welcome. The only information on the second stadium that was released, was the excerpt I posted above. It's almost complete though, so soon that information will be released.

Yeah, hopefully other nations will follow the example of Angola, and appropriate funds in the right places. Many other countries can have this same kind of development happening, and the quality of life improve for their citizens, it's just the leaders have to make the right choices.

Thanks Buyckske, I was going to post that. Glad you're frequenting the Angola forum, there's loads more information there.

As of last year, it was the second fastest growing economy, growing at 21%. This year I wouldn't be surprised if it was the fastest now.

Thanks. There is an enormous amount of Chinese investment in Angola. Angola is now China's largest supplier of oil, and many Chinese firms are helping rebuilding the country.

The relationship between Angola and Portugal is really unique. While Portugal is investing billions of dollars into Angola, Angola is at the same time investing billions of dollars into Portugal. With the current economic slump in Portugal, Angolan investment is welcome in open arms. Many Portuguese construction firms have also partnered with Angolan firms to construct many of these listed buildings.

There is also a growing relationship between Angola and Brazil also, with just recently Sonangol (National Oil Company) and Petrobas (Brazilian Oil Company) are going through talks to let Petrobas explore for oil in the northern coast. There's a specific thread talking about Angola-Brazil-Portugal relations, here's the link if you want to stay informed.

by the way i love this discussion. I live and work in Angola, and things are happening here. Although i dont wanna think of the day the oil runs out here.....................
