China is major H1 consumer of Angolan goods, including diamonds

08 october 2014
China remained as Angola’s main export destination in the first half of 2014, according to figures published in Luanda by the National Customs Service, cited by state newspaper Jornal de Angola.
Jornal de Angola reports that figures published by the National Customs Service showed that China bought goods from Angola worth over $10 billion, accounting for over 50 percent of the country’s exports.
The United States was second (12.1 percent) followed by India (6.8 percent), Taiwan (3.7 percent) and Portugal with 3 percent.
The National Diamond Company of Angola (Endiama) said last month that the country’s revenue from diamonds sold in the first half of the year leaped 18 percent year-on-year to $661 million.
The diamonds attracted an average price of $155 per carat, which roughly puts the amount of diamonds sold at 4,26 million carats.
Angola also produced 4.26 million carats during the same period, which was an increase of 4 percent compared to the same period a year earlier.
