Poland to fund Angolan fisheries academy

Poland will finance the estimated $22 million construction of a fisheries academy in the southern Angolan province of Namibe, says its ambassador to Angola, Piotr Mysliwiec.
He disclosed this to the media here Thursday after calling on Angolan Prime Minister Fernando da Piedade Dias dos Santos.

Mysliwiec, who did not reveal the date for the start of works, declared that the agreement for the setting up of the academy, included the construction of the academy, supply of equipment, as well as the curriculum and teachers to guarantee the training of Angolan staff.

The diplomat, who presented his credential letters in November 2007, said there was a possibility of increasing the amount of the project, depending on the demands.

The ambassador considered the political relations between the two countries as good, adding that "there is a lot of work to be done in order to develop the economic ties".

Concerning the health sector, he said there had been co-operation in various provinces of the country and pointed out the extending of co-operation to other fields, mainly the technological one, as one of the main challenges of his mission to Angola.

On the other hand, he said Poland was interested in obtaining Angolan energy resources.
