Since the end of the Angolan Civil War in 2002, Angola is experiencing a high rate of economic growth by exporting mainly raw materials, such as oil and diamonds. Angola is now in the phase of restoration and development from the civil war, which lasted for 27 years and had destroyed much of Angolan social and economic bases. Being one of the largest oil producers and exporters in the region of Sub-Saharan Africa, Angola also has limitless potentials to further expand its economy in agriculture, fishery and mining industry. The government aims to change its economy from oil-dependent to non-oil dependent economy by investing in such industries. The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) puts economic development (development of human resources, construction of basic infrastructure, agriculture), the stability of peace and human security as its top priorities in agenda and continues to work in Angola.
