Angolan government wants “Made in Angola” goods

Licinio de Freitas Vaz Contreiras, Economy Minister of Angola explained that the government of Angola wants large public consumers to acquire the goods and services they need for their businesses in the local market. Vaz Contreiras also said that large commercial consumers, especially the Ministries of Defence, Health, Education, Social Welfare and Prison Services, would share a database with the Economy Ministry listing domestic suppliers in order to guide them in the procurement process and facilitate the purchase of products. He added that there was a list of around 500 products made in Angola with enough quality to be consumed by the country’s public services. The meeting brought together representatives of ministries, local governments and other public entities, and was accompanied by a similar meeting with suppliers, in which complaints were submitted about the regularity of supply, as well as the quality and quantity of products. The meeting aimed to encourage large public consumers to give priority to domestic products, thus supporting producers in the sale of domestic production and avoiding the outflow of currency in order to import similar products to those already available in Angola.
