Macau (MNA) – Now that its management body has been defined, the Angola Chamber of Commerce in Macau (CCAMO) will look to bridge and promote business opportunities between Angola and the Macau SAR, the organisation President, Carlos Lobo, told Macau News Agency (MNA).
“The first thing we will try to do is make ourselves known to residents and anyone with an interest in having a commercial connection with Angola or Macau. We’ll also have a cultural element, in order to make the situation of Angola more well-known, its problems and solutions being discussed to improve the country’s situation,” he added.
China’s second largest Lusophone trading partner, Angola registered the largest yearly increase in trade in the first eight months of this year, a 47.77 per cent rise to US$15.06 billion.
On November 1, the association held a ceremony at the Macau Military Club to appoint its governing bodies, with Rui Brás and Francis Lam Cheok Va being appointed as Board of Directors Vice-Presidents and Pedro Lobo as the General Assembly President.
The CCAMO is also supporting the Consulate General of Angola to organise the local celebrations of Angola National Independence Day on November 11, with a cocktail reception to be organised in the previous day at the Macau Military Club.
