The youth of Angola, open to change and unburdened by the past, have the future in their hands. They will launch the enterprises that provide the solutions to Angola’s ongoing development.
New York, NY (PRWEB) June 17, 2016
Angola Capital Investments (ACI) announced today that its CEO Zandre Campos was featured in the Huffington Post with his insight on the potential of the youth in Angola. The article entitled “Why Youth Is Not Wasted on the Young in Angola” was originally published on The Huffington Post on June 9, 2016.
The article looks at the challenges and opportunities faced by the young people living in Angola. “The challenge is to cope with the effects of the decline in oil prices on the economy,” Mr. Campos said. “The opportunity is to develop and diversify their country beyond the oil economy.”
Young people constitute the majority of the population in Angola, about 70%, and they face different challenges than the young people that lived through the civil war. Today’s youth are influenced and inspired by music, social media and new technology. New technologies have fostered the next generation of Angolan entrepreneurs. Angolans have a strong entrepreneurial spirit, and more than 40% of women in Angola were entrepreneurs in 2015.
“The youth of Angola, open to change and unburdened by the past, have the future in their hands. They will launch the enterprises that provide the solutions to Angola’s ongoing development. The youth in Angola today hold the answers for tomorrow,” added Mr. Campos.
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, technology and real estate sectors.
