CEDESA launches portal on Public Works and Investments in Angola

On Thursday 18th April, CEDESA – the Centre for Studies for the Economic and Social Development of Africa – presented its website on Public Works and Investments in Angola – https://obraspublicasinvestimentosangola.org/, with the dual aim of providing independent information to academics, journalists and interested parties in general on what is happening in Angola in this area, and to serve as a public information document for Angolan civil society on the evolution of major works in the country, through the creation of a participatory opening mechanism.

The presentation of the project was attended by members of the Angolan and Chinese Embassies in Portugal and the Angolan Consulate General in Lisbon, as well as various businesspeople, academics and journalists.

CEDESA is a non-profit organisation under private law dedicated to the study and research of political and economic issues in southern Africa, particularly Angola. It was born out of an initiative by several academics and experts from the Angola Research Network (ARN https://www.angolaresearchnetwork.org/) , with the main aim of providing rigorous analyses of the economic outlook for Angola and neighbouring countries to political decision-makers, the business community, academics, students and other interested parties.
