The Serbian Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced on Friday a Serbian-Angolan chamber of commerce had been established in Luanda.

It said the move had been organised by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Angola and supported by the Serbian embassy in Luanda and that it was aimed at better connecting Serbian and Angolan businesspeople and encouraging cooperation between the two countries.

The ceremony of the establishment of the chamber was opened by Angolan State Secretary for Trade Amadeo Nunes and also attended by representatives of the Serbian business community in Angola, Angolan businesspeople and representatives of the country’s chamber of commerce and the NGO sector.

Welcoming the establishment of the Serbian-Angolan chamber of commerce, Nunes said it had full support of the Angolan government as part of efforts to boost bilateral economic cooperation.

He urged Serbian businesspeople to come to Angola to see for themselves the opportunities the country offered.

Wishing success to the newly-established chamber, Serbian Ambassador to Angola Milos Perisic said there were ample possibilities for Serbia-Angola cooperation and urged businesses from both counties to make the best possible use of them.
