Luanda – The Republic of Angola might detach itself from the group of the least developed countries within one to two years, as a result of the huge investments the Government has been making in health and education, Angop learned.

The information was released over the weekend by Angolan Foreign minister, Georges Chikoty.

The minister was speaking on account of his recent participation at the UN sponsored Ministerial Conference on Least Developed Countries, in New Deli, India, at the invitation of local authorities. The event also served to prepare the Summit of Heads of State and Government of the group, set for Istanbul (Turkey), in May 2011.

At the meeting, the least developed countries discussed how to carry out south-south cooperation in the search of solutions to respond to the millennium goals.

According to the minister, Angola is among the least developed countries, but might quit this category within one to two years, as a result of the huge investments the Government has been making in health and education, concerning human development.

He said as well Angola has taken the commitment to overcome this goal as human development is where the country is more in disadvantage.
