Modernisation arrives in the post
Major upgrades to Angola’s postal system are designed to expand service coverage nationwide by 2012
While having a modern and well-functioning telecommunications system is vital to a nation’s economic development, a country also has to have a post office that permits people and businesses to move correspondence that can’t be e-mailed efficiently within the national territory and abroad.
Angola’s postal system is in the middle of a modernisation drive that will renovate 163 post offices around the country. The goal is to have national coverage by 2012, providing multi-purpose post offices where citizens can benefit from services including training programmes and internet access.
