Chinese investor African Sunrise Investment Group (ASIG) opened a new shopping center in Cacuaco, Angola´s Luanda province, which will generate approximately 10,000 direct and 30,000 indirect jobs.
Huang Yuequan, chairman of the group´s board of directors hosted Amadeu Nunes, Angola’s secretary of state for commerce, at the opening of the “Nova Era Commercial Center”, which spans over 460,000 square meters and has over a thousand stores and restaurants.
