Israel has allocated $60 million to invest in projects in the southwestern African nation of Angola, including the construction of a solar power plant in the coastal province of Benguela, the Jewish state’s envoy in Luanda revealed on Wednesday, according to an AllAfrica.com report.

Ambassador Oren Rosenblat made the announcement after a meeting with Benguela Governor Rui Falcão.

Rosenblat noted the building of the 50-megawatt plant was part of a broader initiative carried out over the past five years to promote sustainable growth in Africa, the report said.

The Israeli diplomat also pointed out that his country had invested $300 million in Angola’s agricultural sector since 2014.
