Investment Policy Review of Angola

The Investment Policy Review of Angola identifies several gaps and bottlenecks that affect the country’s ability to take full advantage of its strategic location, abundant natural resources and preferential access to external markets. These include a complex system for FDI entry and establishment, burdensome operational regulations, the persistence of restrictive business practices and a lack of institutional capacity and coordination.

The Review also devotes special attention to investment in agribusiness and its contribution to sustainable development. It calls for concrete measures to foster responsible investment and promote inclusive agriculture modes of production. The recommendations emphasize the need to strike a policy balance between the food security and export development objectives, improve access to land and infrastructure, and promote entrepreneurship and skills development
