2014-03-11 08:14 Xinhua Web Editor: qindexing

The Chinese chamber of commerce in Angola set up a service center on Monday in the capital Luanda to provide legal assistance and logistic support to increasing Chinese enterprises and expatriates in the African country.

Currently there are at least 500 Chinese enterprises operating in Angola and more than 100,000 Chinese expatriates working in the post-war reconstruction process, making a remarkable contribution to the social-economic development of the African country.

The Chinese are also meeting with immense challenges and difficulties due to the lack of knowledge of local laws and cultural differences between the two countries, Secretary General of the Commerce Zhao Hongbing told Xinhua. The service center is expected to provide legal assistance to Chinese expatriates in Angola in terms of business registration, visa acquisition and renewal and arbitration in business disputes. It is, among others, to provide assistance to Chinese expatriates in difficult financial conditions.

The Chinese chamber of commerce will cooperate with the Chinese Embassy to Luanda to provide necessary help to Chinese workers in Angola, as visa acquisition and renewal emerged as an urgent problem confronting with the Chinese expatriates as the Angolan government will conduct the first national census in May, Zhao said.

Angola expels thousand of illegal immigrants each year, mostly from neighboring countries who flock to Angola for better job opportunities.
