Despite its wealth in oil and abundance in natural resources, Angola continues to be regarded as a resource curse country with a high level of illiteracy and infant mortality. The government was unable to manage unexpected oil gains, create a mechanism to efficiently distribute growing oil revenues and turn them into a better quality of life for the people, diversify the economy and reduce levels of poverty and inequality. (...) For this reason, Angola needs to increase the level of transparency in oil transactions and thereby reduce corruption, develop training programmes for national frameworks to effectively improve the Angolanization programme and promote local content. (...)

This study reveals the main problems of the management of the Angolan oil industry and provides guidance that can be used to overcome them. The conclusion indicates that theoretical frameworks, management tools, are available, and a firm commitment from the government to implement these guidelines is needed.
