Zhao Zhipeng highlighted that core services across various industries are gradually undergoing digital transformation, which poses higher requirements on networks. For example, as the financial sector moves toward Bank 4.0, stable-state and agile-state services coexist, driving financial service systems to be moved to multiple or hybrid clouds. In the public service sector, digital transformation involves data streamlining across functional departments and requires services to be transported in a unified manner. In the manufacturing and energy sectors, hundreds of types of sensors need to connect to the network, increasing network complexity multi-fold.

To address the preceding challenges, Huawei’s Intelligent Cloud-Network Solution further enhances the experience for industry customers in three dimensions — easy, agile, and simplified — by continuously building its capabilities in CloudFabric, CloudWAN, and CloudCampus scenarios.

Legal cooperation with Spanish-speaking countries

The Equatorial Guinean Ambassador before the European Union, and lawyer before the International Court of Justice, Carmelo Nvono-Ncá, is determined to strengthen legal cooperation with Hispanic countries, with the aim of building a strong alliance with the most important international justice institutions.

He thus met the Ambassador from Argentina to the Netherlands, Mario Oyarzábal, with whom he reviewed relations between the two countries, and the representations that each has before important institutions of justice based in The Hague, such as the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court.

For greater legal cooperation

Furthermore, they discussed Argentina’s candidacy for a seat as judge at the International Court of Justice, the highest court of the United Nations. This candidacy is being led by Marcelo Kohen, professor of International Law, whom Nvono-Ncá met just a few days ago. This candidacy is particularly important for Hispanic countries, as it would result in top-level representation at the highest levels of international justice.

Ambassador Nvono-Ncá was very positive regarding the candidacy and explained during the working session that Hispanic countries occupied a special place within Equatorial Guinea’s international relations, especially for those that he himself deals with from the European capital. Furthermore, he mentioned that the commitment of Equatorial Guinea to South-South Cooperation was increasing the trust and conviction of the country to back initiatives that serve to strengthen positions in the international strata.

Prime Minister receives OMAOC General Secretary

Early this Wednesday morning, the Prime Minister of the Government, Francisco Pascual Obama Asue, received in audience at the Presidency of the Government in Malabo II, a delegation from the Maritime Organisation of West and Central Africa, OMAOC, led by its Secretary General, Paul Adalikwu. Accompanied by the Minister for Transport, Rufino Ovono Ondo, he briefed the Head of Administrative Coordination on the latest developments in the activities of this sub-regional organisation, whose importance is growing due to the problems of insecurity and piracy that are plaguing the Gulf of Guinea and affecting the economies of the Gulf countries.

The sub-region of West and Central Africa, to which the ports of Equatorial Guinea belong, is one of the three maritime zones into which our continent is subdivided. Countries in a maritime sub-region share problems of maritime safety and security, supply and demand for shipping services and the pollution of their respective territorial waters.

Because maritime transport and transit is not only a vital activity for international trade, but is inherently international in its mode of operation, cooperation between countries is essential. And since opportunities, problems and policy issues related to maritime and transit transport are best addressed at the level of regional and international integration, the General Secretary of the Maritime Organisation of West and Central Africa, Paul Adalikwu, explained,

“Basically, I have come to see the Prime Minister and inform him that Equatorial Guinea has been part of the Maritime Organisation of West and Central Africa for 47 years; and there are several advantages that come from membership of that organisation. One of them is to enhance human resource development in the maritime sector; in addition to benefiting from the Regional Maritime Development Bank that the organisation is about to establish. We have allocated 2,800 shares in this new bank to Equatorial Guinea; it will open in Abuja very soon and we hope that Equatorial Guinea will take advantage of its membership of this organisation, buy shares in this bank and become a full member. The bank will provide a low interest rate for investors and professionals in Equatorial Guinea’s maritime sector, for the purchase of new vessels and improvements to the infrastructure in the sector”.

In addition to sub-regional maritime cooperation, international cooperation within the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), the United Nations specialised agency based in the British capital, London, with 174 member states, which oversees the safety and security of maritime transport, the prevention of pollution from ships and other issues related to the sector, is also essential.

“We have also come to notify the Honourable Minister of the holding of a meeting in London to be attended by the twenty-five member countries of the West and Central African Maritime Organisation, This meeting will take place on 5th October, and the Honourable Minister for Transport from Equatorial Guinea has been invited. His attendance would provide him with an opportunity to meet the General Secretary of the International Maritime Organisation in person, to discuss issues affecting Equatorial Guinea”.

Mass and closure of Second Ordinary Period of Parliamentary Sessions 2022

To mark the closing of the Second Ordinary Period of Parliamentary Sessions corresponding to the current year 2022, and the closing of the Second Legislature of the Senate and the Eighth of the Chamber of Deputies, legislators from both parliamentary institutions attended a thanksgiving mass at the San José de Banapa Sanctuary, to thank Almighty God for the calm with which the work they are called on to do for the benefit of the people of Equatorial Guinea and their representatives has been carried out.

The mass, which was attended by all parliamentarians, led by their respective presidents, Teresa Efua Asangono and Gaudencio Mohaba Messu, and accompanied by the Presidents of the Supreme Court of Justice, Constitutional Court, Court of Auditors, Attorney General of the Republic, the Ombudsman and some members of the Government, was officiated by the Parish Priest, Juan Alo Esono, assisted by several religious ministers, who, in addition to conveying to the senators and deputies the congratulations of the Metropolitan Archbishop of Malabo on the conclusion of the parliamentary term, also stressed the importance of drafting and approving just laws to regulate human behaviour, recalling that all law comes from God who is the sole judge and giver of all that every human being has at his disposal.

At another point in his sermon, he appealed to parliamentarians to channel their actions in the pursuit of goodness, mercy and justice, while praising their energy and recognising the complexity of the task of drawing up provisions aimed at achieving social justice, which, he said, must be inspired by God’s principles.

Closing speech by President of Senate marking end of legislature

The Sipopo Palace of Conferences was the epicentre of the closing ceremony of the Second Period of Parliamentary Sessions 2022, which was attended by various national, provincial, district, municipal and local authorities from the city of Malabo, in addition to international bodies and organisations accredited in the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, leaders of the legalised political and religious groupings and representatives of religious denominations, among others.

The closing ceremony featured speeches by the President of the Republic, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, and by  presidents of the Chamber of Deputies, Gaudencio Mohaba Messu and the Senate, Teresa Efua Asangono, who recalled a line by the poet Antonio Machado, “The path is made by walking”, a conviction that has served as a driving force for the Senate, which with determination and will has been moving forward during each given period, forever striving to achieve a style in keeping with the guidelines and objectives of sustainable human development and consolidation of the Rule of Law.

Continuing her speech, Teresa Efua Asangono expressed the privilege she feels at this ceremony.

 Furthermore, she pointed out that politics is one of the noblest activities a human being can engage in, insofar as it is aimed at the service of others, renouncing self-interest. She shared this reflection when citing the challenges faced by the Senate, which she said have had an enormous and tragic impact on the institution, such as the physical disappearance of some parliamentarians from both the upper and lower chambers, the sad events of 7M in the city of Bata and the COVID 19 pandemic, situations that have had a powerful negative impact on the economic and development forecasts for the world, and in particular Equatorial Guinea.

The First Lady’s constant efforts on behalf of the country’s most disadvantaged social strata were also highlighted.

Finally, she wished the parliamentarians a happy return to their homes, recognising their keen interest in contributing to the enrichment of the legislative capacity of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea.

She also extended thanks to the President of the Republic, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, for the moral and financial support and advice he has always reserved for the Senate.

For both chambers, she suggested further consolidating their parliamentary tasks.

Joint Statement on Atlantic Cooperation

The text of the following statement was released by the Governments of The United States of America and Angola, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Cote d Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, Ireland, Mauritania, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Senegal, Spain, and the United Kingdom on the occasion of a joint statement for cooperation in the Atlantic.

Begin Text:

We, Angola, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Côte d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, Ireland, Mauritania, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Senegal, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States, as coastal countries bordering the Atlantic Ocean and members of the community of Atlantic countries, share a commitment to a peaceful, prosperous, open, and cooperative Atlantic region, while preserving the ocean as a healthy, sustainable, and resilient resource for generations to come.

We all depend on the Atlantic for our livelihoods. The Atlantic Ocean is home to important trade routes, significant natural resources, and essential biodiversity. Challenges such as piracy; transnational organized crime; illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing; climate change; pollution; and environmental degradation pose a threat to our livelihoods. The Atlantic Ocean also offers untapped economic potential, from natural resources to new technologies. No country alone can solve the cross-boundary challenges in the Atlantic region or fully address the opportunities before us.

In order to bring together Atlantic countries to accomplish our shared goals, we will explore opportunities, as appropriate, to partner on a set of common challenges in the Atlantic Ocean region and to explore the development of a wider dialogue on strengthening cooperation in the region.

We will explore opportunities to advance shared sustainable development, economic, environmental, scientific, and maritime governance goals across the Atlantic, in accordance with international law, in particular as set forth in the provisions of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), and we reaffirm UNCLOS’s important role in setting out the legal framework that governs all activities in the ocean and the seas. We aim to enhance regional cooperation, to develop a shared approach to Atlantic Ocean issues, and to build shared capacity to solve the challenges we face in the Atlantic.

We will explore opportunities to work together to advance our shared goals in the region across multiple topics. We will work to develop the sustainable ocean economy and an inclusive economic model to ensure the ocean continues to sustainably support our livelihoods, from food for growing populations to the conduct of global commerce, both now and for future generations. We recognize that there is no sustainable development without a serious commitment to promote development and alleviate poverty in developing countries. We acknowledge the importance of the transfer of technology on voluntary and mutually agreed terms as a means to bolster development, create jobs and income, support livelihoods, and bridge the technological gap among nations.

We will pursue opportunities to address the challenges of climate change and environmental degradation, collaborating on science-based, innovative solutions to advance our shared goals, including averting, minimizing, and addressing loss and damage; building climate resilience; conserving marine and coastal ecosystems; and mitigating marine pollution.

We will explore pathways to improve maritime governance, from enabling cooperation for humanitarian response and search and rescue operations to deterring piracy, addressing IUU fishing, and combatting narcotics trafficking.  We are also committed to seeing the South Atlantic as a zone of peace and cooperation that contributes significantly to the strengthening of international peace.

Several organizations in the Atlantic have already made important progress on our shared goals. We will build on the spirit of mutually reinforcing Atlantic cooperation fostered by these organizations and support their work to the fullest extent possible. We seek to partner with organizations such as, among others, the Atlantic Center in the Azores as a central hub for innovative, pan-Atlantic policy analysis, political dialogue, and capacity building; the Zone of Peace and Cooperation in the South Atlantic as a key coordinating body for South Atlantic countries; the Yaoundé Architecture and the G7++ Friends of the Gulf of Guinea as a central body on African regional maritime law enforcement; and the All-Atlantic Ocean Research and Innovation Alliance as a venue to advance scientific cooperation. We also seek to partner with other appropriate organizations, including regional fisheries bodies and organizations working on sustainable ocean economy and climate and environment issues related to the Atlantic.

We will continue to identify additional areas for cooperation based on dialogue with coastal Atlantic countries and existing Atlantic-focused organizations. We will explore opportunities to bring together Atlantic countries, while sharing principles of peaceful existence and ensuring our actions on the Atlantic Ocean, especially the high seas, abide by international law and the international law of the sea, in particular as set forth in the provisions of the 1982 UNCLOS. We seek to strengthen our mutual dialogue and cooperation on this host of shared challenges in the region. We invite other coastal Atlantic countries to join us.
