A federation of China Chambers of Commerce in the various Portuguese-speaking countries is being planned, according to the parts.
After signing a deal with the Portugal-China Chamber of Commerce of Small and Medium Enterprises (CCPC-PME), Luís Cupenala, head of the Angola-China Chamber of Commerce (CAC), said that it opens a ‘new page’ in the relation of the chambers with China.
Cupenala, leader of the Bongani group, said that the project will create the premises for the affirmation of the Federation of Chambers of Commerce of the Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries (CPLP) with the Asian giant.
The Angolan businessman said the new deal will create a space for the sharing of experiences, commercial exchanges, transfer of know-how, investment in knowledge, new technologies and scientific research.
“These initiatives are, in essence, the key to success for sustainable progress, especially for developing countries like Angola”, the CAC president said.
As part of CAC’s Strategic Plan, cooperation protocols were signed with associations of Angolan companies with Chinese capital, law firms and insurance companies operating in the African country.
The event was also attended by videoconference by the ambassador of Angola to Portugal, Carlos Alberto Saraiva de Carvalho Fonseca, diplomatic representatives and Y Ping Chow, president of CCPC-PME.
