The Republic of Angola covers 1,247,000 km² in the western region of Southern Africa. It is the second largest country south of the Sahara after the Democratic Republic of Congo. The country contains six major geomorphologic areas: Coastal area, marginal mountain chains, the old tableland, Zaire basin and the basins of the Zambezi and Cubango.
The oil industry is presently the backbone of the Angolan economy. Oil and fishing are the main sectors that have attracted foreign investment in recent years. The upstream oil industry is the country’s major source of foreign exchange, and oil production and its supporting activities contribute about half of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and 90% of exports.
