How Italy can help your country, Angola, to develop agriculture?

By investing, as I just said. We need such investors. We have a program. It is a plan that defines priorities. During my speech I spoke about some of these priorities and the domains in which businesses, our foreign partners, the business operators can invest in food production. I mentioned rice, beans, etc. This is a necessity for our population because food production of agricultural origin has slowed. So we need an intervention from other partners with whom we want to develop agriculture.

With industrialisation, isn’t there a risk to loose original food and traditions?

No. We have a family based agriculture on which we aim to get to self-sufficiency and we also have a plan for food security in which we foresee all this.
