It is on the Angola's Atlantic coast. Its current renaissance is a truly inspiring success story.
In recent history, the center of decades of conflict, the start of the 21st century has seen a massive boom in construction in Luanda, where peace and stability have attracted numerous foreign companies to invest in offices in the city.
The government of Angola, getting rich off revenue from oil, diamond, and other natural resources, is also investing heavily in and around Luanda, including large social housing highrises to replace slums;
Major improvements are being made to roads, highways, and the rail system in and around the city but there is yet an overwhelming amount of work to be done. And while certainly still home to a large poor population, free housing and the creation of thousands of new jobs each year means that Luanda may in years to come have a bright future ahead.
Luanda is an industrial centre; manufacturing industries include beverages, automotive products, and cement. Petroleum was discovered nearby in 1955, and there is a refinery at the north end of Luanda Bay.
