I understand what you're saying, but Angola has a different system of dealing with illegal migrants. The Angolan government has probably the most efficient border control in all of Africa. Just last year, they expelled 300,000 illegal migrants, and in the news you are constantly reading reports of the police detaining illegal migrants, and repatriating them back to their home country, if they lack the right papers.

I'm glad you like the discussion. The day the oil runs out, is decades away from happening. If and when the oil runs out, the economy will already be developed. One of the main goals of the Angolan government is to diversify the economy, so it won't be so dependent on the sale of oil. The national oil company "Sonangol" is heavily involved in this process of diversification too. Read up on the ongoing economy news in the Economy thread in the Angola Forum. It's bilingual along with everything else, so everyone should be able to understand.

Luanda

Luanda - The second phase of construction of Belas Shopping mall in Luanda, begins to be implemented next year, with the construction of 64 shops, new spaces for leisure and entertainment, said, Wednesday, the manager of Marketing, Irmala Sousa.

The manager put forward this information to ANGOP, the purpose of inquiries from citizens about the expansion of this business to other provinces of the country, which, according to the company, there is no immediate intention of building units of Belas Shopping in other regions of Angola.

"For the provinces so far not yet. First we want to finish the six stages of the project here in Luanda Sul, and only after you finished and the guaranteed returns on investments can go to other regions of the country, "explained.

The Belas Shopping in Luanda had been scheduled for six stages in the same area, and currently, according to Irmala Sousa, is only completed the first phase, which includes the 100 stores, eight movie theaters, restaurants and entertainment spaces for children.

The second phase of the project will include a top floor with escalators, panoramic elevators, and external, larger stores with areas of interactive entertainment and leisure activities for adults and petizes.

Questioned about the return on investment at the mall, Irmala said he still failed to achieve the gains to be little time for the operation of the establishment, a year, but stressed there are profits in terms of demand.

"With the Belas people's behavior has changed a lot. The families and people on an individual visiting the center to watch movies, go shopping and take meals".

The mall has created five thousand jobs (direct and indirect) and expects to create about twice its size.

Belas Shopping is an investment company's Angolan Hogi Investments, with 70 percent of the shares, in partnership with the Brazilian Odebrecht, with 30 percent, inaugurated in March 2007.

Nice to see how Angola is growing fast. I just hope the angolan government doesn't exclude the less fortunate people, creating two countries in one: the poor and the rich.
