Angola will cooperate with Portugal in the timber industry to diversify national economy, a senior official said here on Tuesday.

Pedro Barros Katendi, director of the Angolan Agro-industry, told reporters that a delegation of the Portuguese Timber and Furniture Association will visit Angola during the first half of June with a view of studying the ways to realize the Angolan-Portuguese business partnership in timber industry.

The official said the Portuguese delegation, headed by the association Chairman Fernando Rolin, will meet with representatives of the Angolan ministries of Industry, Public Works and Agriculture.

According to Katendi, two timber processing and furniture sectors will be implanted in Kwanza Norte and Bie provinces which are well known for rich forestry resources.

He disclosed that it is also projected the construction of an industry of massive timber in northern Cabinda province to use the remains of raw materials in saw-mills, carpentries and woodworks.

"This is the new technology used nowadays in the furniture sector," he said, adding that the implementation of this new technology will enable the product to reach the market at a lower price.

"The idea is that the industry of Cabinda will be the support for the country's wooden and furniture industries," he said.

After this partnership, he added, it is expected to project the construction of eight big carpentries in the provinces of Zaire, Moxico, Bengo, Cabinda, Huambo, Uige, Kuando Kubango and Lunda Norte where timber resources are abundant.
