Message from the Ambassador

Dear friends,

Welcome to the webpage of the EU Delegation in Angola.

My main mission is to further strengthen EU relations with Angola, an important country with much potential and opportunities for mutually beneficial interactions, particularly in terms of regional security, economy, trade and energy sectors. At the same time, I wish to underline the continuous presence of long-term EU assistance aimed at the development of the country, with education, rural development and good governance being our jointly agreed priorities. The EU remains the largest donor and is fully committed to supporting sustainable development and the well-being of the Angolan people. In this context, the EU Delegation is determined to provide all necessary support to Angola in order for it to reach the Sustainable Development Goals.

EU relations with Angola are rich in diversity and scope. We have achieved a lot, but there is still untapped potential to further foster our relations. As I am just at the beginning of my mandate in this beautiful country I am fully convinced that there is a willingness on both sides to push the relationship to a higher level through dialogue, mutual respect and understanding amongst equal partners, making the relation between Angola and the EU an example of a true partnership between an important African country and the EU. 

Jeannette Seppen, Ambassador of the European Union to Angola.
