Brasilia — Angola and Brazil will implement a co-operation programme that aims at integrating Angolan citizens in the Public Voluntary Service in Big Events in the South American country, namely the 2013 Confederations Cup and the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
This is outlined in an agreement signed last Wednesday, in Brasilia, between the Angolan minister of Youth and Sports, Gonçalves Manuel Mandumba, and the Brazilian Sports minister, Aldo Rebelo.
Still in the framework of the signed agreements, Angolan athletes will be able to hold training programmes in Brazilian high
performance centres, until 2014, in different sports disciplines.
Brazil will also donate sports materials to Angolan sports schools, at the same time that Brazilian experts will lecture in Angola
subjects such as sports administration, sports law, leisure, sports medicine and high performance.
The two countries will equally stimulate and promote the participation of Angolans in the 2014 World Cup.
The programme that was signed on Wednesday is to last two years.
