On his arrival, at the Luanda Air Base, João Lourenço received welcome greetings from the Vice President of the Republic, Bornito de Sousa, the Minister of State for Economic Coordination, Manuel Nunes Júnior, and the Governor of Luanda, Joana Lina.

The two newly-opened hospital units were built from scratch, as part of China's financing line, with a total of US$68 million (USD 34 million each).

The work on the two hospitals, which were equipped with state-of-the-art technology, began in 2012 but was halted for three years and resumed in 2018.

Built in an area of 45,080 square metres, the projects include telemedicine services and operating rooms with the capacity to carry out three surgeries simultaneously.

On that occasion, the Head of State assured the budget for the efficient operation of all the health units recently built by the Government.
