Angola: Goodbye to Kinaxixe Market in Luanda

, cultural asset is outweighed by the language of money and speculation”. A modern shopping center is going to be built in the same place.

    i want to start a business in the ship supply industry, seen the fact that i have been away from the country for quite some time, i’ve became unfamiliar with the economy in Angola. would it be a good idea to do such thing??

    Good – this market was a relic and was not viable for current uses. A modern shopping center on this square is a much more appropriate use of this space. There are many historic and notable buildings that should be preserved in Angola. This was not one of them.
