"The combination of its oil bonanza and a huge investment in infrastructure has led it to become the hot destination for businesses seeking to invest in Africa. “There’s a general feeling that if we are not a player in Angola in the next five years we will have missed the best opportunity in Africa,” says a senior western diplomat in the region."

Just like wheels, printing presses, cars, TV, radio, electricity, water..." I personally couldn't agree more.
