so it's good to know that some solutions are coming.

What is more, for all its evils, the Angolan administration is in fact trying to reform the country.

Let's talk external equilibrium: between 2014-2017, Angola posted a cumulative USD 17Bn in current account deficits. (2/n)
What is more, the drop in international reserves was even worse, meaning that money was flowing out from the Financial Account at the same time. Between 2014-18, Gross International Reserves tumbled by USD 16bn.

#PequeñosGrandesHeroes, Capítulo 3️⃣

En esta edición volvemos a cambiar de continente. Estamos en #Africa 🌍 para hablar de un seleccionado que hizo historia en el 2006, #Angola 🇦🇴. Este es un relato triunfal en medio de tantas desgracias. Image
Angola es una nación relativamente joven, ya que se independizó de #Portugal 🇵🇹 en 1975. Si bien es un país rico en yacimientos minerales y petrolíferos, no pudieron disfrutar de los beneficios de esto ya que la guerra civil los atrapó y los hundió en la miseria. Image
La guerra acabaría recién en el 2002, aunque sus secuelas quedarán por siempre en todos aquellos que la han vivido, sea por combatir como por haber perdido a algún ser querido. De hecho, los jugadores de esta historia no quedarían exentos de este dolor... Image

@antonioguterres @UN_Spokesperson @StephDujarric In DC, Pompeo has started up in State Dep't briefing room, says he will take questions. By contrast, yesterday in UN that @AntonioGuterres bans Inner City Press from entering, Guterres did a vague stakeout statement on which he took no questions. Now DC thread
@antonioguterres @UN_Spokesperson @StephDujarric @FUNCA_info @MatthewLeeICP @silas_atefor @AdamShawNY @SaraCarterDC @kristina_wong @allimadi @simonateba Pompeo says he won't comment on visa matters, but that "US will not violate the UN Host Country agreement."

1. #Angola gov making reform progress but still much to do if debt risks to be contained. Some necessary reforms unpopular & risk of pushing too hard as economy recovery fragile. Need time to shift economy from oil & to jobs but time not on Angola’s side. Recent trip thread 1/10
2. Key areas reform for investors to watch 1/ FX. 2/ Balancing budget & stabilising debt. 3/ Privatisation program. Each important to gov & for keeping $3.7bn IMF program on-track (crucial for eurobond investors & China’s exposure). S&P has #Angola on a B- rating with neg outlook
3. FX big hurdle to non-oil business. Depreciation since devaluation. More market-based allocation but hard to get letter of credit needed to access FX (most firms import inputs). Official & parallel rate gap had narrowed but recently widened. Now official AOA364/$, parallel=~535

Judges in #Kenya have postponed a long-awaited landmark ruling to strike out colonial-era legislation and decriminalize same-sex relations.
The judgment will now be given in late May.… #LGBTQ 🌈
The High Court said it needed more time to consider the evidence.
The delay prompted anger and disappointment among campaigners. “I just wish the excuse was better. People’s lives are hanging on the line. Justice has been delayed, but it has not yet been denied,”said Yvonne Oduor
Frank Mugisha, a campaigner for gay rights in #Uganda, said before the ruling that a positive result would encourage other countries to follow #Kenya’s path. #Angola recently decriminalised homosexual sex and courts in #Botswana will decide on the issue next month. #LGBTQ

This retraction by @AlJazeera actually raises more questions than answers, and to my mind at least, brings to the fore, the fact that our Federal Republic of Anyhowness, has gone global...
Yesterday, asides @AlJazeera_World, other news outlets, including the Twitter only news outlet, @spectatorindex said that #Nigeria's ambassador had attended the opening of the American Embassy in #Jerusalem.
Isreali outlets such at @TimesofIsrael and @HamodiaIL also ran with the news. @haaretzcom actually went so far as to publish an infograph that included #Nigeria's name as one of the country's "celebrating with them" on the grand new opening...
