In 2017, Angolans went to the polls and elected President João Lourenço through a democratic process. Since taking office, his administration has employed decisive measures to curb corruption, ease foreign investment by streamlining the visa process and length of stay in the country.
Angola and the US have had a long-standing trade partnership. There’s now an opportunity for this relationship to become more robust; hence the inspiration for AngoVest to: 1) educate; to heighten and explore awareness of the trade opportunities that exist, 2) facilitate trade; connect outside investors with trade opportunities in Angola and strengthening the potential for trade between the United States and Angola.
AngoVest was founded in 2019 by Daniel Capuia, in Portland, Oregon. After years of attending investment briefings, it became evident that investors in the Pacific Northwest and around the US had a strong desire to invest in one of Africa’s emerging markets – Angola. AngoVest was an inspiration by close collaboration with the Office of Dir. of US Commercial Services in Portland, the Angolan Consulate office in Los Angeles, the World Oregon and the local Chamber of Commerce.
To this end, AngoVest has engaged interested investors, predominantly in the US, to showcase their areas of expertise in Angola.
AngoVest facilitated Oregon’s first official business trip to Angola under the Joao Lourenceo’s administration. In December 2018, the Oregon delegation met with pertinent government and business entities in Angola to include The Ministry of Business, Dept of Promotion Investment and Export, Angolan American Chamber of a Commerce and Minister of Agriculture.
Angola is at a pivotal juncture in its developmental/growth phase and AngoVest welcomes you to thoughtfully participate in exploring mutual economic benefit between Oregon, the United States and Angola to deliver core infrastructural projects in Angola
