Angola to limit dependence on diamonds, oil

05 march 2009

Angola said that the country will strive to reduce reliance on diamonds and oil as the global economic crisis impacts negatively on the diamond industry while oil prices remain depressed.
"Despite the severe economic and financial crisis that has affected almost the entire planet our government has already taken steps to mitigate their negative effects," said President José Eduardo dos Santos.
He said some of these steps included the need to reduce dependence on oil and diamonds, through the diversification of the economy.
Eduardo dos Santos said his country will encourage exports, substitute imports as well as boost local industries, adding that priority would also be given on the creation of a new strategy for marketing diamonds, with more intervention by the State.
Angola is the world's fifth diamond producer and is set to be the leading oil producer in Africa ahead of Nigeria.
Its diamond reserves are estimated to be over 200 million carats and only 42 percent of the reserves are currently being explored.
