During the meeting, the British diplomat sought to find out about the ministry's projects and priorities, perspectives and strategies outlined for the post-covid19 period, with a greater focus on environmental issues.

Jessica Hand expressed her country's readiness to work and cooperate with the institution in the three areas, creating a rapprochement with British businesspersons and  organizations.

In regard to tourism, the diplomat informed that after Prince Harry's visit, among many projects, Ecotourism has received attention of UK agencies.

After the prince's visit, the Angolan Executive received additional financial support for the country's demining process, complementary to the commitment reflected by the Executive.

“The ministry sees itself in all the projects and actions mirrored by the ambassador of this country. Our strategy aims, above all, to create an economic and sustainable base, with tourism as pillars supporting the integration of cultural aspects in environmental protection”, minister Adjany Costa revealed.
