History

Angola.jpg

Germany and Angola have maintained a stable relationship, with numerous official state visits by both states. In 2011 Federal Chancellor Merkel paid a state visit to Angola. This visit led to a joint declaration of intent between the governments of both Republics to intensify bilateral dialogue, through a political partnership signed in Luanda. Angola is Germany’s 3rd most important trading partner.

In 2007 Angola and Germany signed an investment protection and promotion agreement and since then interest in helping to rebuild Angola’s infrastructure has risen. In 2010 State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology Pfaffenbach opened a Delegation of German Industry and Commerce in Luanda; and, a German-Angolan Business Initiative (DAWI) was set up in 2007.

The Goethe Institute in Luanda reinforces German-Angolan culture and education. It is believed that more than 2,000 Angolans have studied in Germany
