Angola Public Information Center

Angola Public Information CenterThe Public Information Center (PIC) in Angola is open to the general public. The PIC provides access to current statistics, literature and reports on development work in Angola and beyond. The materials in the collection are published by the World Bank Group, United Nations agencies, academia, other development partners and civil society groups.

The growing partnership between the World Bank and Angolan academic institutions has led to the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding , for the establishment of the Angola Development Information Center. The center is a partnership between the Bank and the Agostinho Neto University which will host the center. The Angola Development Information Center aims to enhance knowledge and information sharing around various development issues. Once fully operational and opened to the public, the center will contribute to enhanced consultation with stakeholders through development dialogue. In the meantime, the World Bank Country office is still providing some assistance to those clients/visitors that require Bank publications.
