Over the past few years, Angola has prospered in various different ways. The beautiful landscape of Angola, such as Cabinda, Benguela, Bengo, Cabinda and many other provinces of Angola has helped in economic revival through tourism development. The charm and richness of Angola lies in the fact that the landscape and the buildings are deep rooted in history. Photos of Angola are breathtakingly beautiful and attract large number of tourists. As a tourist and visitor, Angola has a lot to offer. The rich flora and fauna of this country has brought nature lovers to its National parks such as Cameia and Iona. In addition to enjoying landscape and natural beauty, tourists can enjoy the rich musical legacy and of course the beauty of Angola. The traditional music of Angola is a fusion between African beats and Caribbean music.

In addition to being a growing tourism hub, Angola has much else to offer. There has been a rapid increase in investments in Angola, especially in sectors like oil, minerals, diamonds and agriculture. Luanda, the capital city of Angola has become a commercial centre of Africa and acts as a link between the East and the West. Even though oil and diamonds are the sectors that are prospering, the agriculture sector too is expected to take off and attract foreign investments in the near future. Products like tobacco, vegetables and sugarcane are already exported from Angola to different parts of the world. Apart from diamonds, this country also has rich mines of other gems and iron ore. There is a vast potential for investment in Angola in all these industries and to exploit the full potential of the country. With a high rate of development, Angola has become the fourth fastest growing economy in the world and it has shown sustainable growth in the past 6 years.
