DAccording to a press release from the Press Secretary of the President of the Republic, the delegations headed by the Presidents of Angola, João Lourenço, and Botswana, Eric Masisi, worked today, in Gaborone, to follow up and consolidate the aspects discussed in the first instance by the two Heads of State, in their previous meeting alone.
The National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan 2019-2025 provides for the identification, in collaboration with provincial governments, of territories for the creation of pacaça and elephant reserves in the provinces of Uíje, Zaire and Lunda Norte.
The Angolan President is in Gaborone, the capital of Botswana, where he traveled Thursday to reinforce cooperation between the two countries.
The note highlights that for the future cooperation between the two African countries, the Governments chose the area of diamonds, for Angola to gather that country’s experience in terms of production, cutting and commercialization.
The list of areas for cooperation also includes livestock, for the repopulation of cattle in Angola, which will be assisted by Botswana in sending embryos and semen.
The two Governments also addressed the air link between Gaborone and Luanda, cooperation in the area of energy, with a perspective of supplying electricity to Botswana from the Angolan province of Cuando Cubango.
In the area of fuels, Angola invited Botswana to be part of the shareholder structure of the Lobito refinery under construction, an initiative welcomed by the Gaborone authorities.
