Vodafone and Movicel to collaborate in Angola

Vodafone Group signed a strategic consultancy partnership with Movicel Angola, with the companies set to cooperate in a number of business areas.

Under the terms of the non-equity agreement, Vodafone will provide “strategic and operational support” in areas including consumer marketing, technology and business operations. It will also see the duo “collaborate on further potential opportunities to benefit their customers”, the companies declared in a statement.

The CEO of Movicel Angola, Gianvittorio Maselli, said, “We are delighted to start our strategic relationship with Vodafone, as part of our transformation journey in Movicel in Angola. This engagement will provide Movicel with technical and marketing expertise that will improve the quality of services we offer to our customers, and accelerate the expansion of digital services across Angola.”

The agreement is part of Vodafone’s Partner Markets programme, which sees it working with companies beyond its subsidiaries and affiliates. Established in 2002, Vodafone said it now collaborates with 29 companies in 43 countries.

Vodafone also has a presence in the region through subsidiary operations Safaricom and Vodacom.
