Angola's rapidly growing economy requires a better-educated workforce to raise the competitiveness of Angolan businesses and improve professionalism. Chatham House published a paper in 2011, Education in Angola: Partnership Opportunities for the UK, on the opportunities in Angola for education providers from the United Kingdom. This includes universities, English language training and training for the oil and gas industry.
HE Adão do Nascimento, Minister of Higher Education of Angola and his delegation will present their vision for higher education in Angola and one of the authors of the Chatham House paper, Emanuel Gomes will be the discussant.
