The delegation met with the Speakers of both Houses of Parliament, the Moroccan investment agency and the British Council, among others. 

The delegation looks at de-mining activity in Angola

UK Delegation Visit to Angola

The delegation to Angola was the second to visit the country since the devastating 27 year civil war which ended in 2002.  The focus of the delegation was very much on the way in which Angola is dealing with the social and physical consequences of the war. It was also focused on the developments in the National Assembly which in September 2008 held its first parliamentary election since 1992.
