Endiama seeks to expand operations beyond core business - report

23 january 2012

Angola’s state-run diamond company (Endiama) is contemplating to revamp its business structures as well as expand operations beyond its core business to boost profits.
Angop news agency quoted board chairman Carlos Sumbula as saying that the move would also help cushion the company from the “evils” of the world financial crisis that hit the country’s diamond sector late 2008.
He, however, could not specify the areas that Endiama would diversify into.
Meanwhile, Sumbula said that the signing of 14 diamond prospecting contracts last year had pushed the number of projects run by the company to 35.
He said the resumption of operations at Luarica, Calonda and Uari projects was expected mid this year.
Endiama, Sumbula said, had also started preparatory work for the start of work at the Tchiuzo Kimberlite in 2013.
