About the Angola

Angola is a complex and challenging country to understand and engage. Combined with cultural, linguistic and historical differences, most non-Portuguese speaking countries, such as the UK, have struggled to develop a strategic approach to the country until recently. Yet Angola is increasingly significant internationally with major oil reserves and an ambitious foreign policy. It also offers corresponding challenges of weak governance, significant corruption, human rights violations, and erratic foreign policy interventions.

Life of Indian there

Indian community in Angola is small compared to other Southern African countries and comprises businessmen, professionals, skilled and semi-skilled workers engaged mainly in construction industry and several employees of trading companies. In addition, many professionals and skilled workers for service at off-shore oil fields and its facilities are assigned for short durations. Chartered accountants and Computer Software engineers are also tricking in. The restrictive visa regime is a major hurdle.  There are a large number of people of Indian origin who hold Passports of different nationalities including African nationalities most of whom are engaged in trading and construction businesses.
