Angola, UAE sign energy and waters agreement

The authorities of Angola and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) last Monday signed three agreements in the domain of production, transportation and supply of electric power and drinkable water.

The memoranda of understanding were signed by the Angolan minister of Energy and Waters, João Baptista Borges, and UAE’s Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook Al Maktoum, on the sidelines of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) being attended by the Angolan President, João Lourenço.

The minister said that the agreement aims at the construction of a power production plant central in the Angolan eastern province of Moxico, as well as an electrical system to inter-connect the country’s eastern region.

The agreement also includes the implementation of a desalination system in the Angolan coastal region with a view to improving the supply of potable water to the citizens, through the utilisation of low-coast quality technique.
