23 October 2013, Luanda – The co-operation in the oil and gas sector dominated last Monday afternoon, in Luanda, the meeting between Princess Astrid of Belgium and the CEO of the state-owned National Fuel Society of Angola (Sonangol) Francisco Maria de Lemos.

The princess, who arrived last Sunday in Luanda with an entrepreneurial delegation, received detailed information from the Sonangol CEO about this company’s functioning and its expansion at international level, during the meeting that analysed the co-operation in the hydrocarbons sector.

In the end of the meeting, which lasted about one hour, no statements were made to the press.
