Foreign Minister of Angola to Ekaterina Zaharieva: We count on Prime Minister Borissov and Bulgaria to become our gateway to the EU15 November 2019 | 15:43 | FOCUS News Agency
The two discussed a wide range of issues regarding bilateral relations and the international agenda. "Your visit comes at a time that is important for the restoration of our friendship, which began during our fight for independence. The Republic of Bulgaria has educated many students from Angola, who today contribute to the well-being of our country. As an EU member state, Bulgaria could be the gateway and advocate of Angola before the Union and support our participation in the various EU-Africa cooperation instruments. We think it is very important to hold a business forum between the two countries as soon as possible. We rely on the support of Prime Minister Borissov and you to encourage economic cooperation between our two countries," said Manuel Domingos Augusto.
"I feel surrounded by friends here. I hope we will soon organise a visit of your experts to Bulgaria, who will present opportunities for investments and trade. We have potential in high technology, agriculture, manufacture of human and veterinary medicines, the military industry," Zaharieva said. She presented the government's tax policy, business incentive measures and Bulgaria’s economic performance.
"Our main goal is to rebuild and further develop relations between Bulgaria and the sub-Saharan countries, which we have maintained for years on a mutually beneficial basis. Africa has enormous potential and it must be harnessed,” Deputy Prime Minister Zaharieva said.
