Economic issues dominate Merkel's visit to Angola

German economic interests played a key role during Angela Merkel's three-country trip to Africa. In oil-rich Angola improving business ties was a major topic on the agenda for Chancellor Merkel. Chancellor Angela Merkel arrived in the Angolan capital Luanda for a two-day visit on Tuesday July 12, taking up an invitation by the country's president Jose Eduardo dos Santos. The Angolan leader had visited her in Berlin in 2009. It was the first time that a German chancellor has made a state visit to Angola. And she is one of the few European leaders who have even been to Luanda at all in the past few years. […] But Merkel didn’t have a lot of time for this partnership with Angola. A mere 24 hours were planned in Luanda. In addition to talks with dos Santos, she attended a forum with German and Angolan businesspeople.
