The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Angola, Manuel Augusto Domingos visits Brasília today to reciprocate the visit of minister Ernesto Araujo to Luanda in December 2019.
Brazil was the first country to recognize the Independence of Angola in 1975. Since then, bilateral relations in the fields of politics, economy, culture and cooperation have intensified. From 2019 on, meetings between Brazilian and Angolan authorities have evidenced common domestic agendas in the fight against corruption and economic opening, which are priority areas for presidents Jair Bolsonaro and João Lourenço.
During the meeting, the two foreign ministers will discuss themes of the current bilateral agenda, with emphasis on the expansion of trade and investments; the increase in cooperation initiatives, particularly in the areas of health, security, defense and agriculture, and the dialogue on the international agenda, especially on the Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries (CPLP).
