For decades, Angola had been in a bloody civil war since independence from Portugal. Angola’s economy is still suffering from the consequences of this. More than half of the citizens are unemployed and almost three quarters live below the poverty line. In the Human Development Index of the United Nations Angola occupies one of the last places. Thanks to its mineral resources – primarily the oil and diamond deposits – the country has enjoyed a great economic boom in recent years. Angola’s economic growth is currently the greatest in Africa.
