Angola: U.S. Students Briefed On 'New Angola'

Washington — At least 35 students from the Hampton Roads Academy, in the Hampton News city, State of Virginia, visited Friday the embassy of Angola to the United States of America, to learn more about the current Angolan reality.

Accompanied by two senior Hampton Roads Academy teachers, the students attended over the weekend in Washington DC the (North American Invitational Model United Nations Conference, NAIMUN), an organisation that gathers more than 3,000 secondary school students for a simulation about the world of international relations.

During the visit, the students watched a video on the "New Angola" and had the opportunity to interact with some diplomats of the Washington diplomatic mission who provided them with relevant information about the African country.

The meeting focused on matters regarding the country's national reconstruction and rehabilitation programme being carried out by the Angolan Government with a view to eradicating poverty and boosting development.

The 35 students had the opportunity to pay a guided visit to the premises of the embassy.

The Hampton Roads Academy is an independent education institution for girls and boys, running programmes ranging from primary to high school.
