Botswana Country Overview

Angola is a country situated on the west coast of southern Africa, with a vast territory measuring up to twice the size of France!

Geographic location: The country borders Namibia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia, and the Atlantic Ocean. Interestingly, Angola also has authority over Cabinda, a resource-rich exclave province to the north of the country.

Economy: While Angola is currently classified as a lower-middle income nation, its economy is one of the fastest-growing in Africa, with a Gross Domestic Product estimated at USD 72 billion. This economic growth is mainly driven by the country’s bountiful natural resources, which include petroleum (accounting for roughly 50% of its GDP), natural gas, and minerals (including gold, diamonds, platinum, copper, manganese, phosphates, uranium, and feldspar).

Population: As of 2021, Angola’s multi-ethnic and multi-cultural population is estimated to have reached 32.87 million, giving the country a sizeable workforce. An additional advantage is that most of the population speaks fluent Portuguese, which can add great value when working with European countries.
