Angola to Modernise Public Television

12 November 2019

Angolan president Joao Lourenco last week pledged to provide investments to modernise the country's Public Television of Angola (TPA) after learning of the hardships faced by the media outlet.

The president made the pledge following a visit to the TPA's production centre to assess the workers' working conditions and seek solutions to the shortage of technical tools faced by the public media outlet.

Lourenco said the public television entity will be prioritised in terms of investments, while other public media outlets will receive aid in due time.

"The investment aims to provide better service to the public," Lourenco said.

The TPA expects to switch its broadcasting system from analog to digital broadcasting next year, the board said.
