It shows a part of future Luanda, many slums are about to disappear which means massive ressettlement of people into new housings into another area of Luanda, new highways, new parks, new high-rises, new financial district, shopping, new marina, universities, hospitals, art galleries, public transport system etc.

Massive urban requalification...This has Dubai dimensions, the video mainly shows the urban requalification of Novo Samizanga (scroll the video and start watching it from 4:00min)

Angola´s government wants Luanda to become Africa´s best capital city

It will blow your mind, really! please take the time to watch the video!:cheers:

it is really weird, I know....what you mean by "silent continent" ...take the current stadiums, they are under construction but you won´t find a single pic on the web, then we get the new international airport in Luanda

MARKETING IS A SHAME IN AFRICA!!!!

THE CONTINENT NEEDS TO INVEST IN MARKETING OR THE REST OF THE WORLD WILL CONTINUE TO THINK THAT WE ALL LIVE IN CAVES OR ON TREES IMAGES THAT THE WESTERNE MEDIA LIKE TO SHOW ABOUT AFRICA!!!!

T-H-I-N-G-S H-A-V-E T-O C-H-A-N-G-E!!!!

MARKETING IS A KEY TO A BETTER IMAGE FOR AFRICA!!!

Barragon, I don't think moderators are concerned about having Angolan or any other African country forum even though there's much more developments than other countries I which have got their own forums. This is so sad. I just hope one of them will in detail tell us what process they take to create a new forum for a country.

We have to remember that in Angola there is hardly any need for advertising and marketing. In other countries large (and small) projects need to be "sold" to the local community - the community needs to support the development. If they don't support it, the people can place pressure on zoning commissions etc. to not approve the project. In Chicago, there's been a public fury over the construction of a children's museum inside a park here. That doesn't happen in Angola.

Angola is still relatively closed politically, and in terms of civil society. The government negotiates with contractors/designers and the private businessmen involved; there's not much need for public consultation.
