The new centre to be built in Luanda means that Angola becomes the latest country worldwide to have a Regus workspace.

Angola is undergoing economic transformation as worldwide low oil prices are speeding up the Angolan government’s efforts to diversify the economy. Despite continued challenges, a number of opportunities have also risen.

According to the African Development Bank, Angola's economy will have grown by 2.3 per cent by the end of 2017, and will grow by a further 3.2 per cent in 2018.

Regus’ new centre is expected to benefit companies of all sizes and industries as well as facilitate increased economic activity in the country.

“We are delighted that Angola has become part of the Regus global network,” says Rui Duque, the Regus country manager for Angola. “Flexible workspaces are rapidly gaining popularity around the world, and becoming an essential part of a modern country’s business infrastructure.

"We’ve been experiencing high interest from local and international businesses willing to establish a footprint in Angola, and also from companies that need to rationalise and downsize unused resources, namely office space. As a result, we are looking forward to opening additional centres not only in Luanda, but across the whole country to support Angola’s growing economy.”

The first Regus centre in Angola is a modern office space set over the whole of the sixth floor of the Cuanza Sul Tower, an attractive, brand-new building in Talatona, a business district and a prime location 20 minutes from the airport and 30 minutes from downtown Luanda.

The facillity also features virtual offices, which provide businesses with a prestigious address in the capital. Regus notes that its network also gives businesses access to a community of more than 1.5mn like-minded professionals worldwide.
