Angola: Angola Increases U.S. Poultry Imports in 2017

The Angolan Government made more foreign exchange (forex) injections available in 2017 to combat the high inflation and reduced food availability due to lack of forex since mid-2015. The government allocated more forex resources to the food, oil and medicine sectors ahead of a contentious election held in August. The result of the forex injections is that Angola is now the fourth largest importer country of U.S. poultry and third largest market for U.S. frozen chicken leg quarters behind Cuba.
