Located on the west coast of southern Africa, Angola borders the four nations of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Republic of the Congo, Namibia, and Zambia. Approximately 10 percent of arable land is used for agriculture, with food production falling short of consumer demand, making Angola reliant on imports to meet its needs. As Angola works on building infrastructure, agricultural production will increase as the nation is home to seven of Africa’s ecosystems and can produce a wide variety of agricultural goods. Food is sold in formal and informal markets throughout Angola, with modern retail gaining popularity in the urban regions located in the west coast port cities like the capital city of Luanda. Luanda is the location of Angola’s largest deep-water port, capable of receiving large shipments of major goods. Since the end of Angola’s civil war in 2002, governance has remained constant, and macroeconomic stability has been improved through flexible exchange rates, secure monetary policy, fiscal consolidation, and central bank autonomy in recent years.
