Message from the Ambassador
Trade and investment are vital to economic growth around the globe. Trade and Investment create jobs, broaden economic opportunities, and raise living standards in the United States and in other countries such as Angola.
The United States has in place a Strategic Partnership Agreement with Angola, one of just three in Sub-Saharan Africa. Angola is leading regional market for U.S. companies with U.S. exports reaching slightly above $1 billion in 2015 and significant U.S. investment especially in the petroleum industry.
Angola offers both high returns and great risks to investors and exporters. My staff and I are available to offer advice, market knowledge, and contacts to assist you in your investment in Angola. We are working to enhance the opportunities for U.S. companies to participate in the Angolan economy and for Angolan companies interested in doing business in the United States. In 2014, both the U.S. Commercial Service and the Foreign Agricultural Service opened offices at the U.S. Embassy Angola to promote U.S. exports into this dynamic and challenging market.
