Doing business in Angola

Angola is one of Africa’s fastest growing economies and is a market with significant opportunities for UK companies across a range of sectors.

The value of UK’s bilateral trade in goods with Angola has increased year on year and currently is over £600 million. The UK is the second largest investor in Angola with annual investments of over US$3 billion. Traditionally, the UK’s involvement in Angola has been within the Oil & Gas Sector, although increasingly UK companies in other sectors are doing business there.

What are the opportunities?

Angola presents huge opportunities across the Oil & Gas, Education & Training, Financial Services and Agriculture sectors. The Angolan government is keen to diversify the Angolan economy and is offering attractive incentives to encourage private investment in the non Oil & Gas sectors. Angolan companies are keen to do business with British companies and hold UK companies in high regard.
