Did you know these Angola Facts?

After 27 long years of continuous civil war between the National Union for the Total Independence of Angola and the Popular Movement led by Jose Eduardo Dos Santos, Angola finally breathed a sigh of relief in 2002, when the war came to an end with the death of Savimbi who lead the Union for the Total Independence of Angola.

Booming Industrial Scenario in Angola

This sub-Saharan African country is affluent in natural resources including diamond, oil and is of extreme archeological importance, making it one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Overall, the country’s oil production has contributes to almost 85% of GDP growth and diamond exportation to another 5%.

In 2006, Angola was named as a member of the renowned OPEC and on an average has been assigned to produce about 1.65 million barrels per day. Not just oil and diamond, but Angola’s agricultural scenario too is noteworthy. Owing to the fact that the country is rich in green fields and also that most natives take up farming as a profession, most of the food items are still imported to the country as the land had been destroyed due to war mining.

Lucrative Employment Opportunities in Angola

There is a dearth of both skilled technicians and qualified managers in the country as the country through its length time of war has marred not just infrastructural-wise but also in the education department.

For those seeking employment opportunities in Angola, all the top managerial positions, including general, sales and HR along with technicians, accountants and teachers, will yield a better career prospect than any other.

In fact, for those engaged in the bio-fuel and other modern agricultural sectors would find themselves in a favorable employment position.

Startling Angola Facts

A shameful Angola fact states that most of the revenue the country earns through export of oil goes directly into refurnishing the infrastructure and to further import food.

The level of education is sub-standard and it is understandable that in a war-stricken country, not much emphasis was laid on education, but even then the low level of primary and secondary education is astonishing.

The country is determined to leave behind the war scars and start afresh. Efforts are being made to re-instill Angola’s natural wealth and also metamorphose the shameful past into a developed and fruitful future.
