Angola's economy has seen significant progress,
particularly over the last few years, the head of an International
Monetary Fund (IMF) mission said.
Cited by state newspaper Jornal de Angola, Mauro Mecagni praised
the fact that the country had managed to overcome the 2009
financial crisis, basing his statements on the results of an
analysis of a number of macroeconomic indicators carried out by
members of the mission.
The IMF mission visited the Capanda dam and two agricultural
projects in Malange province and met with members of the Kwanza
Norte provincial government.
Noting that the aim of the visit was to assess the state of the
Angolan economy, following the funding programme agreed with the
IMF in 2009, Mecagni said, "we wanted to come to Malange and Kwanza
Norte to observe directly the results of the programme," and to
assess the problems that still exist and that may be overcome in
