ENHANCING EQUATOGUINEAN – JAPANESE TIES

Equatorial Guinea (EG) can today boast not only of its football team, but also of its continuous progress towards achieving the targets outlined in the country’s Vision 2020, a blueprint for economic diversification and sustainable growth. Foreign companies and investors are expected to play a pivotal role in catalysing EG’s economic development.  As such, the country is actively engaging international political and business communities in order to inform interested parties of its immense dormant potential, particularly in sectors like petrochemicals and mining, agriculture, fisheries, transport, tourism, electricity, and finance. 

On the sides of the sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development held on the 26th of August this year in Nariobi, Kenya, H.E. Gen. Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, President of the Republic of EG, held an EG-Japan Summit Meeting with Prime Minister of Japan, Mr. Shinzo Abe. Prime Minister Abe encouraged Japanese companies to take advantage of the vast potential of EG, particularly in the still steadily growing petrochemical sector. Additionally, President Obiang encouraged Japanese investors to take a keen interest in opportunities associated with human resource development, fisheries, and agriculture.

Today, EG is already home to American, Swiss, British, Chinese, Spanish, Russian, French, Brazilian, and a growing number of Japanese companies. Still, it remains an as-yet relatively little known African country. Its politics can be difficult to grasp; the bureaucracy can seem intimidating; and the opportunities may not be immediately apparent.
