Angola will invest 1.6 billion euros in construction and facelift of 30 airports, including 16 new ones, by the end of 2016, said the CEO of National Airports Air Navigation Company (ENANA), Manuel Ceita.
Manuel Ceita said so in Macau where he is attending the IV Conference of Airports of China and of the Portuguese-speaking Countries.
The official stressed that the Angolan investment programme follows the upgrading policy implemented by the company managing the airports and regulate air traffic in the company.
He added that the work in progress in the aviation will cover the various areas of the sector, stressing the importance of multilateral cooperation and conferences such as that of Macau in benefit of the project.
"It's important because the exchange of experiences enables us to evolve in other ways, not just in the construction of an airport from scratch, but also in the business, he said.
Ceita said that the development of the aviation sector in Angola has an important basis in cooperation with Portugal, notably with the NAV, which "has accumulated experience and extensive knowledge to spread throughout the world."
Macau Conference is set to close this Thursday.
