In connection with the establishment of Blue Water Portugal back in March 2015, Blue Water also secured its presence in Luanda by placing an employee from the Portugal office, Paulo Sérgio Oliveira, in-house at our agent in Luanda.

Paulo is working closely with his colleagues in Portugal, from which office most of the activities are handled.

Paulo, who is Portuguese, has been in the business for the last 18 years in Angola and has an extensive knowledge of the Angolan market, its specific procedures, practices and policies.
