Angola: Nation Needs 2.3 Million Staff to Meet Its Development

Luanda — At least two million and 300 thousand is the number of qualified staff that Angola expects to achieve by 2020 to meet the needs for the development of major priority points of the economy over the next five years, said economist Manuel Nunes Júnior.

The economist stated that these cadres will be trained to respond to the developmental needs of large groups of the economy as the mega "cluster" of geology, mining and industry, oil and gas, energy and water, forests, housing, tourism and leisure, health, education and culture, transport and logistics and financial activities.

According to the president of the Commission of Economy and Finance of the National Assembly, currently the country already has one million and 200 thousand staff, among leaders, managers, senior technicians and average, and that figure will double within the next seven years.

He said that part of the 2.3 million technicians will be formed under the National Plan for Staff Training.

He added that to ensure the excellence of the training of these cadres there will be made a combination of internal training capabilities with existing capabilities elsewhere in the world, partnering with the best training centers that the world can offer.

M anuel Júnior said that the combination of abundant natural resources with qualified and competent staff will certainly help the country to achieve its target of raising the Human Development Index (HDI) of the quotient of 0.40 for the current level of 0.53, the coming years.
