After Angola gained independence In 1976, the banking sector was nationalised and two major Angolan banks, namely Banco de Angola and Banco Comercial de Angola, changed their names to Banco Nacional de Angola (BNA) and Banco Popular de Angola (BPA) respectively. The BNA, according to the Organic Law 69/76, inherited the responsibilities of a central bank, bank of issue and commercial bank, as well as of being the only legal holder of foreign currency and responsible for all foreign transactions. In 1988, the government introduced a programme to transform the socialist centralised economy into a market-oriented economy. These changes also required the transformation of the banking sector, including the restriction of the BNA's role to being solely responsible for monetary policy and acting as issuing bank, banker of the Government and reserve bank. This was achieved by promulgating the new Organic Law 4/91, of 20 April, which transformed the BNA into a central bank.
