AngolaCompulsory Marine Cargo Insurance

The attached presidential decree has recently been enshrined in Angolan law to make the purchase of marine cargo insurance compulsory in Angola. We expect that it will come into force during H1 2020. As you will see in the attached decree (apologies – it’s in Portuguese!), not only is it compulsory to buy marine cargo insurance, it also has to be bought locally using a local insurer. AIBA is well positioned to help place this insurance.
