U.S. AND ANGOLA STRENGTHEN BILATERAL COOPERATION
The U.S. Special Presidential Coordinator for Global Infrastructure and Energy Security, Amos Hochstein, visited Angola for talks with the Angolan government aimed at strengthening bilateral cooperation following on the Africa Leaders Summit held in Washington D.C. last December.
During the visit, Special Presidential Coordinator (SPC) Hochstein met with Angolan leaders, including President João Lourenço, and the Ministers of Energy and Water; Transportation; and Telecommunications Information Technology and Media to discuss ways to grow the U.S.-Angola partnership and how to achieve progress and create prosperity and security for the Angolan and American people.
In his meetings, SPC Hochstein discussed efforts to accelerate a just energy transition and deepen U.S. investment in infrastructure. He highlighted the vital role Angola plays in building a secure, prosperous future.
SPC Hochstein also met with American business leaders from Sun Africa and Africell to hear their paths to success that will help Angola achieve its telecoms and clean energy goals.
The Africa Leaders Summit in Washington D.C. in December built on President Biden’s Strategy for Africa. This strategy is all about partnership as neither the United States nor any African nation can solve the big challenges that we face alone– but we can solve them if we work together.
