Doing business in Angola

In recent years, doing business in Angola has improved considerably, as important reforms have been implemented.

For example, in the field of electricity, Angola improved the monitoring and regulation of power outages by beginning to record data for the annual SAIDI (System Average Interruption Duration Index) and SAIFI (System Average Interruption Frequency Index) for all the outages lasting longer than three minutes (down from 15 minutes previously).

As for cross-border trading, Angola made exporting and importing easier by implementing an automated customs data management system, ASYCUDA (Automated System for Customs Data) World, and by upgrading its port community system to allow for electronic information exchange between different parties involved in the import/export process.
