Angola is in Southern Africa, bordering the South Atlantic Ocean, between Namibia and the DRC. The climate is semi arid in the south and along the coast to Luanda. The north has a cool and dry season (May to October) and a hot and rainy season (November to April).Portuguese is the language of the former colonial power and predominates in Luanda's business circles. English is increasingly spoken in commercial circles, as is French. The main religion is Christianity.The economy of Angola is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, but is still recovering from the Angolan Civil War that plagued Angola from independence in 1975 until 2002. Despite extensive oil and gas resources, diamonds, hydroelectric potential, and rich agricultural land, Angola remains poor, and a third of the population relies on subsistence agriculture.In Angola it is advisable to know a few words in Portuguese, use formal titles and exchange compliments when greeting. It is not advisable to take photographs of local people, or official buildings etc. Business attire varies from conservative, lightweight to casual due to the weather.The security risk for expatriates in Angola is medium, but high in Cabinda province. Risks include violent crime, undetected landmines, remnant wartime explosives and bandits.The currency of Angola is the Angolan New Kwanza (AOA). Credit cards are accepted in a limited (but increasing) number of hotels and restaurants. There have been reports of credit cards being cloned. ATM’s are increasing in number but are limited. US dollar cash is widely used.Private medical facilities are good in Luanda. They are costly and most charge in advance. In the rest of the country health care is very limited and basic.The population of Angola is 25.8 Million (2019 est.), while the inflation rate (CPI) is 16.08% for Angola as at October 2019.Xpatulator Hypothetical Tax for Angola is based on the current personal income tax rates which are progressive up to 17%.
