Angola to open a diamond cutting and polishing plant in 2021

Angola’s major diamond cutting and polishing plant being built in northeastern Lunda Sul province will only be complete in the first semester of 2021, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Angop learned.

The information is contained in a press release from the Ministry of Mineral Resources, Oil and Gas (Mirempet), that says that the plant follows a public-private initiative involving Sodiam E.P and the Indian multinational KGK.

According to the source, the undertaking will provide jobs for young people from diamond mining regions.
