UK Trade & Investment in Luanda recently played host to a small group of
British businesses, led by British Expertise, drawn from the Construction
sector. British Expertise is a private sector organisation for British
companies offering professional services internationally.
The main objective of the visit was to produce a scoping report for members of
British Expertise to see the many opportunities within the Construction sector
in the Angolan marketplace. The scoping report is available, for free, on the
British Expertise website www.britishexpertise.org
Via a tailor made programme arranged by UKTI, the group had two days of high
level calls including Ministers and various relevant Ministries, local
construction companies, banks and the Chamber of Commerce. Feedback was
positive and many who came saw the opportunities for their companies services
within the growing infrastructure in the country.
As a direct result of this visit, one UK Company has already indicated that
they will be returning to the market shortly to discuss with local partners
the possibility of engaging with local companies.
