Angola's Diagnostic Trade Integration Study (DTIS) was validated in July 2007. The primary goal in the DTIS was to provide Angola with a plan to reactivate its productive sectors. There is a focus on agriculture and manufacturing sectors in order to diversify the economy, reducing oil dependency, while building an export capacity that could lead to a better integration of Angola into the international markets. This primary goal supports the objective of building strong export capacities of non-oil sectors in the medium to long-term.

 

Main progresses to date

The Government of Angola is in the process of nominating participants for the composition of the National Steering Committee and has put forth significant efforts with development partners, both in-country and abroad, concerning the role of Donor Facilitator. Mr Prado Farmhouse, Director of International Cooperation with the Ministry of Trade has taken up the post of EIF Focal Point, and as of September 2013, Angola became one of three LDC representatives on the EIF Board.

Outlook

With the recent push for increasing relations with Development Partners (DPs), the prospect for EIF activities in Angola looks positive. There have been Government assurances that the process will move forward including with the establishment of a National Steering Committee, demonstrating significant willingness to move forward with the implementation of the programme.
