    And what is it, gentlemen are worried about export? The export contract is much more interesting to the factory, you look and the hard workers will receive a bonus, the equipment will be updated, a little money will be spent on social issues ... if the managers do not cut among themselves

    I suppose, again, loan without return. In vain, let them walk on foot. They did not grow up to helicopters, lianas did not master.

      Angola is a pretty solvent country, a major exporter of oil, diamonds, gold!

        In 1996, Russia wrote off $ 3,5 billion of the $ 5 billion debt of Angola. The rest of the amount must be returned to Russia by 2016 in the form of bills. Bills? That means more time will pass and ... they will write off this money, BUT when Angolans make new debts
        And so half the world is still ... support.
        Who will respect us after that?
