During his visit to Lisbon in November 2018, Angolan President Joao Lourenco described his priorities in three points: fighting corruption, diversifying the economy of Africa’s second-biggest oil producer and broadening Angola’s external relations, to make it less dependent on China.

Both President Lourenco and his host, Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, concluded that Portugal could help Angola with its economic conversion project, particularly in agriculture and small to medium-sized commercial and industrial sectors.
