On April 20, 2018, Axians Portugal CEO Pedro Afonso met with Angolan journalists during a Tertulia on Information Technologies and Digital Transformation, where he can check the progress of the brand's local operation in relation to the sector.

According to the official, this dynamism has forced companies to invest in Information Technologies and Digital Transformation as a way to stand out in the respective segments of activities.
Comparatively, Pedro Afonso, said: " Axians operations in Angola and Mozambique started at the same time, beginning of 2017. In the meantime, the brand's customer base in Angola has been notably larger than that of Mozambique, with around 60 customers in one year, which we consider to be a great achievement", Said the official who added that one of the major challenges of the subsidiary in Angola will be the entry into the oil industry.
