The Angola Field Group invites you to ‘Economic Challenges Facing Angola‘ with Nicholas Staines, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Representative in Angola. In 2009 Angola was badly affected by the global crisis but has largely restored its macroeconomic stability and is now ready to face its development challenges. The presentation will focus on the medium-term macroeconomic challenges* facing the country.

Everybody is invited to attend the presentation, Thursday, February 21, at 8:00 PM at the Viking Club. Our presenter, Nicholas Staines, became the IMF’s Representative in Angola in early 2011. He has been with the IMF for some 15 years, much of it working on Sub-Saharan Africa. He joined the Fund from the private sector as a macroeconomic forecaster following several years in academia.

In close cooperation with the Viking Club, this event is offered free of charge. Beverages and snacks are sold at the bar which opens at 7:30 PM. The Viking Club is on the main floor of the Edificio Maianga,  Rua Marien N”Guabi, No 118 across from Panela da Barro, on the same side of the street as the Suite Hotel. For a map, click here and you will be directed to our Join Us page.
