The Angolan Head of State, who is since Wednesday making an official two-day visit to Germany, has on the top of the agenda to strengthen the presence of companies from that European country in Angola.
The Angolan leader - who has already made state visits to France and Belgium since he took office in 2017 - now seeks German investment to contribute to Angola's economic diversification process, with a view to reducing the country's dependence on oil.
In Berlin, João Lourenço is due to attend the opening ceremony of the Seventh Angola-Germany Economic Forum, whose goal is to make possible the entrance of new companies in Angola.
The forum will also seek to bolster the presence of firms already operating in Angola such as Voith Hydro, Siemens, Bauer, Bosch, Megger and Gauff Engineering.
