Discover, evaluate and know how to take advantage of all the infrastructure partnership opportunities in the Angolan Industry sector
All the topics relating to the Angolan industry infrastructure will be dealt with on the first day of the conference. This is the day when all horizontal sectors will be analysed, i.e. all sectors where the development of infrastructures has a fundamental impact on the development of all other sectors. This includes the Transport and Logistics, Industry and Financial sectors. Public and private representatives from the entire infrastructure segments will come together during this day in order to analyse development programmes and business opportunities within these sectors. The objective is to provide all participating companies with the necessary tools to establish infrastructure partnerships in Angola and to provide a complete framework regarding the infrastructural development of these crucial strategic sectors.
The Industrial Sector
Two hundred and ten new private industrial operations were established in the country in 2011, as a result of investments valued at more than 800 million dollars. The food, beverages, chemical and wood industries contributed to this development. On the other hand, certain current activities will lead to the reestablishment of the textile industry and special attention will be given to the building materials industries, in order for the country to reach, in the short term, the material self-sufficiency in the civil construction sector. In terms of small and medium size companies, 18 work groups were created throughout the country’s provinces, which will prepare 492 new industrial projects and respective technical, economic and market viability studies.
- Seventy three new industrial plants in the Special Economic Zone (SEZ): the Angolan National Petroleum Company (Sonangol), wishes to install 73 new industrial plants in the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) and, pursuant to this, is currently seeking partnerships with private companies. The new industrial plants will comprise activities such as metal working, galvanization, production of prefabricated houses, waste recycling, glass production and poultry production. The SEZ is located in the Municipality of Viana, 28km east of Luanda, comprising an industrial and a commercial hub. The investment is valued at 40 million dollars.
- Industrial development hubs in all 18 provinces: eleven sites have already been located for the creation of industrial development hubs. This is expected to be a huge opportunity within the framework of the public-private partnerships legislation.
- Self-sufficiency in the production of cement until the end of 2012: within the country’s industrialization programme for the period of 2009 to 2012, the government is working to develop the entire building materials manufacturing sector, in order to reduce imports and meet the demands of the domestic market.
- Processing of metal waste: Angola has an installed capacity to process 120 thousand tons of metal waste annually. With some projects in the pipeline and some already in the development phase, Angola will reach an installed capacity of 1,845 million tons.
- Sugar cane processing plant: the Marubeni Corporation received an order from the Angolan government to build a sugar and ethanol production unit, valued at 650 million dollars. The Marubeni group will build a turnkey factory and will be responsible for the factory design, procurement of materials, civil engineering, procurement and installation of equipment and operation trials.
- Sugar plant in the Cuanza Sul Province: the project is valued at 82,3 million dollars and will be executed as from the current year, in the commune of Condé, Ebo municipality, province of Cuanza Sul. The development will be executed by Refriango group, which already has other investments in Angola and will occupy an area of 10 thousand hectares.
- Reestablishment of the Textile Industry in 2013: the reestablishment will occur with the completion of Textang’s upgrade, under a wider project being executed by a Japanese group, Marubeni. The project includes the following companies: África Têxtil, Satec and Textang. Marubeni, the company contracted to carry out the project, sourced financing valued at 1,15 billion dollars for the rehabilitation and upgrade of three manufacturing plants.
