The European Union is represented in Angola by a Delegation office in Luanda (since 1986). In 2012, the EU and Angola signed the Joint way forward (JWF) to intensify cooperation.
The EU implements its cooperation through two main channels: bilateral partnership with the Governement of Angola and support to civil society organisations.
The EU’s bilateral cooperation with Angola is currently focusing on 3 priorities:
STATE CAPACITY BUILDING – To foster Angola’s long-term stability, we promote good governance, democracy, and the rule of law, including anti-corruption measures, better resource planning and use, and a dialogue on human rights.
JOB CREATION – To build a viable future for Angola’s youth, we support actions that boost job creation and encourage regional economic integration and enhanced trade and investment relations with Europe.
ECONOMIC DIVERSIFICATION – We support the steps taken by the Angolan government to transform its economy and make it more resilient and diverse, to overcome its dependency on oil revenues.
Angola also benefits from European funding allocated to the Portuguese-speaking African countries and Timor Leste (PALOP-TL) group.
Support to civil society organisations
We fund civil society projects with grant to support the implementation of actions in several thematic areas: education, justice, agriculture, citizenship...
