Luanda — The Angolan transport sector, with emphasis on maritime and air fields, will rely on the technical support of Spain regarding the management and
governance models based on an agreement signed Wednesday in Luanda by the incumbent Angolan Transport minister, Augusto Tomás and the Foment Minister of Spain, Ana Pastor.
Augusto Tomás said so to the press after the signing of the legal tools, stressing that the Angolan government is making greater investments in the fields of rehabilitation, upgrading and construction of new airports.
The Angolan minister said that the challenges demand additional skilled staff, new governance and management models.
According to him, the country may take advantage of the Spanish "know how" to train its human resources for new equipment of support to the air navigation.
He added that the Angolan transport sector has reached a level of development that requires a new approach model, with better ability to intervene at the level of skilled human resources, in term of technology and especially in the adoption of best international practices.
The agreement with Spanish minister Ana Pastor coincides with the working visit being paid by the minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Spain, José Manuel Garcia Margall, to Angola since Tuesday.
