The chapter focuses on development discourses of the Estado Novo (1933-74) raised around Angola and Mozambique. In addition to being, politically and economically, the two most significant parts of the Portuguese Empire, they also became white settlement colonies. This last characteristic held strong sway in the development model that the regime devised for those colonies. Although the chapter gives priority to the perspectives and strategies of the Portuguese state, it also presents the views of experts and scholars. It is based on political documents, such as governmental statements (namely of ministers of Colonies/ministers of Overseas Provinces and colonial officials), colonial legislation and Planos de Fomento (Development Plans); and on scientific surveys and reports, especially of the Junta de Investigações do Ultramar (Overseas Research Council).
