In addition, it has some of the richest fishing grounds in Africa, especially along the far southern coast.

South Africa exported goods worth R5 billion to Angola in 2020. With Angola’s economy estimated to have grown by 2.4 percent in 2022, the country ranked as South Africa’s 39th largest export market in…(state the year).
