Angola: Walvis Bay Supports Angola's Reconstruction

Windhoek — The ceremony of allocating the land plot in which will be built the Walvis Bay International Logistical Park (WILP), which is also intended to contribute to the reconstruction of Angola's southern, central and eastern regions, took place last Tuesday, with the selected comapnies getting the respective assignments from the Town Council.

The selected companies are NAAHI, NAMPORT, TRANSNAMIB and the consulting firm SPC.

ANGOP has learnt that the first stage of the project should take off within the next three years and it is estimated at USD two billion.

The ceremony was chaired by the Walvis Bay mayor, Immanuel Wilfred, and attended by diplomats, managers of public firms, foreign entrepreneurs, among other guests.

On his turn, the counsellor-minister of the Angolan Embassy in Namibia, Guido Castelbranco, in representation of the Angolan ambassador and on behalf of Angola, thanked the local authorities for the implementation of this project, adding that it will have a great impact on the reconstruction of motorways, roads and houses in Angola's central, southern and eastern regions, as well as benefit other neighbouring countries.
