Angola Capital Investments CEO discusses why agriculture is an emerging opportunity in Angola
NEW YORK, NY, April 18, 2016 – Angola Capital Investments (ACI) announced today that its CEO Zandre Campos was featured on the Huffington Post with his insight on agriculture in Angola. The article, entitled “Why It’s Critical to Cultivate Agriculture in Angola,” was originally published on April 8, 2016.
The article looks at agriculture in Angola. “Angola’s history involved a flourishing tradition of family-based farming,” Mr. Campos said. “Flash forward to today, post-independence and the civil war. Angola has changed from a self-sufficient exporter to a country that needs to bring in most of its food and other key commodities from abroad.”
Mr. Campos believes agriculture can be revived in Angola. The country cultivates just 8% of its available land, there is more than 2,000 acres of land that are unused. “Angola was once an agriculturally rich country. With some assistance and dedication, it can be again,” he added.
Zandre Campos is the chairman and CEO of Angola Capital Investments, a leading international investment firm in Angola. ACI invests in companies in the energy, transportation, hospitality, healthcare and real estate sectors.
