Angolan president calls for greater industrialization of Africa

Abu Dhabi - The President of the Republic, João Lourenço, defended on Tuesday in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, the "abolition of illiteracy" as well as greater investment in electrification and industrialization in the African continent. ,

According to the Angolan Head of State, the industrialization of the continent will prevent the continued loss of skilled labour, senior managers, scientists and researchers.   In a speech at the Summit on Sustainable Future, President João Lourenço said that such focus will prevent works of art and other wealth from Africa from continuing to leave the continent in unfavourable conditions and without creating extra value and jobs for the countries of origin.   At the summit, in Abu Dhabi's Sustainability Week, the statesman said that paradoxically, Africa, despite being the world's largest natural resources reserve, is less able to meet people's basic needs.   João Lourenço considered it essential to attract knowledge, advances in science, technology, capital and private investment to transform local raw materials locally.   With this, the Head of State hopes to create more wealth, well-being, jobs and opportunities for growth.   It is in this wake that the Angolan president declared that he sees the future of Africa with optimism and understands that the dream of developing the continent is achievable.   In this regard, he referred to the experience of other continents such as Asia, which in half a century has passed from importer to exporter, competing with First World countries.   He also pointed to the example of the Emirates and other countries in the Persian Gulf, mentioning how good use of oil revenues can help diversify economies.   The Angolan statesman defended for Africa a sustainable development that respects and preserves nature, for the benefit of the future generations, favouring the use of clean and renewable sources of energy.   João Lourenço has been in the United Arab Emirates since Saturday (12), on an official mission, at the invitation of the local authorities.   In the UAE, the Head of State participated as a guest of honour int the "Zayed for Sustainability" award ceremony.   The president was accompanied in this mission to the United Arab Emirates by Cabinet ministers and aides.
