Presidential Golf Day

First Edition: Angola 2019

The Presidential Golf Day, held for the first time in Angola, coordinated by the Ministry of Tourism and the World Tourism Forum, is an annual event to promote the image of Angola and to attract investments for the development of Golf Tourism and through this to boost business and networking between local and foreign companies and several companies will use the event to entertain customers, CEOs and employees.

João Lourenço used the praxe techniques, the famous “swing”, for the first stroke. The shot was good. The cry of satisfaction soon followed, both from Joao Lourenço and from those present.

Loaded with symbolism, the initial gesture symbolized the country’s need to give impetus to the peace industry: sun and sea tourism. The President was followed by the small golfer Tsaone Madilola, the First Lady of the Republic, Ana Dias Lourenço, the Minister of Tourism, Angela Bragança and the Minister of Youth and Sports, Ana Paula Sacramento. The tournament was held for the first time in Angola, coordinated by the Ministry of Tourism and the World Tourism Forum.

With the participation of more than 80 golfers of different nationalities, the event was disputed and is intended annual. In this first edition, it was focused on promoting the image of Angola and attracting investment for the development of golf tourism. After the first stroke, the President of the Republic inaugurated the Horse Boxes and then attended a match of Equestrian Polo, a mode that, like golf, takes the first steps in the country.

In the Mangroves, Barra do Kwanza, João Lourenço granted a brief exclusive interview to CNNTurk and another to the national press. The President received in audience: the president and the director of the World Tourism Forum, Bulut Bagci and Danilo Nhatumbo.
