Both discussed some cooperation projects and also Brazilian actions on the African continent. One of these actions is the Kitoko project, which seeks to create a “smart city” in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and which brings countless opportunities for Brazilian investors.

Atepa also confirmed his participation in the Brazil Africa 2020 Forum, where he will be a speaker. He is considered one of the most important African architects, being responsible for iconic works in various places on the continent.
