Cristina Mangue Abeso takes up post as Equatorial Guinea Permanent Delegate before the Macau Forum

On 13th December, Cristina Mangue Abeso was officially received at the Permanent Secretariat of the Forum for Economic and Trade Cooperation between China and Portuguese-speaking Countries (Macau Forum) as the new Permanent Delegate appointed by the Republic of Equatorial Guinea to this intergovernmental organisation.

The ceremony was presided over by its Secretary General, Ji Xianzheng, accompanied by the Deputy Secretaries, appointed by China, the Portuguese-speaking countries and the Macao Special Administrative Region, in the presence of delegates from permanent member countries, among others.

Following the visit to the Forum’s headquarters, the Secretary General received Mangue Abeso in his office.

During the meeting, the two figures discussed issues of bilateral interest.

The Forum for Economic and Trade Cooperation between China and Portuguese-speaking countries was formed in October 2003 and aims primarily to promote economic and trade exchanges.

At present, 10 countries are part of this intergovernmental cooperation mechanism: Equatorial Guinea, China, Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, São Tomé and East Timor.

President of Republic returns from trip to Washington

The Presidential Couple, Their Excellencies Obiang Nguema Mbasogo and Constancia Mangue de Obiang, returned early in the morning on Sunday 17th December, after attending the second US-Africa Leaders’ Summit in Washington DC.

From 13th to 15th December, the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, through its legitimate representative, His Excellency Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, took an active part in the work that brought together more than 40 Heads of State and Government from the African continent and leaders from the United States to discuss bold, practical ways of strengthening ties and promoting common priorities. The Biden administration has released finance for various projects and sectors in African countries for a total of 55 billion dollars.

During this summit, the US leader showed his willingness to grant a seat to the African continent as a member with voice and vote on the United Nations Security Council, in addition to the incorporation of African Union countries within the G-20.

His Excellency Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, in addition to this work, also held meetings with companies in the hydrocarbon sector. It emerged from this meeting that Cosmos plans to drill a new exploration well in 2023.

In the presidential terminal at Malabo International Airport, Their Excellencies Obiang Nguema Mbasogo and Constancia Mangue de Obiang were met by the Ministers for Security and National Defence, and several advisers and senior commanders from the national Armed Forces.

Regarding the working sessions and meetings with oil and gas companies, the Head of State was also optimistic about the country’s economic recovery.

This was His Excellency Obiang Nguema Mbasogo’s first trip abroad after being sworn in on 8th December as President of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea for the next seven years.

United States-Africa Leaders’ Summit ends

At the Washington summit, which brought together leaders from Africa and the United States, including the President of the Republic, Head of State and Government, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, the United States decided to bridge the trust gap with Africa, which has widened in recent years due to the perception that Washington was not paying enough attention to the African continent. The Biden administration has portrayed the US as a solid, reliable partner, demonstrating that the US can be an important catalyst for Africa’s development in the coming years.

At the Washington forum, Africa has been recognised as a key geopolitical player capable of shaping the present and future of the global economy; specifically, the summit addressed issues that purely and simply affect the continent, such as the economy, climate change and the environment, security, health and education – a completely different discourse to the one that the countries of the continent had to listen to during the Donald Trump era, in which the region felt let down.

Washington’s stance comes at a time when the United States is lagging far behind China in terms of investment in sub-Saharan Africa, which is becoming an increasingly important arena in the tense competition between the two world powers, China and the United States.

In the same vein, First Lady Jill Biden held a working session on Wednesday with the first ladies, including Constancia Mangue de Obiang.

In short, the White House has announced specific steps to relaunch the relationship with Africa, and tangible results are expected. Biden has already made public his support for the African Union to become a permanent member of the G-20. It is time for Africa to have a permanent seat at the table of international initiatives and organisations; it is also calling for Africa to have a permanent seat as a veto-wielding member of the UN Security Council.

Washington has announced US investments in the economic, security and health sectors worth $55 billion, and the extension of the Africa-US Growth and Opportunity Act, which boosts imports from the continent by eliminating tariffs on certain products but which expires in 2025, will be confirmed.

During the US-Africa Business Forum, $15 billion in investments pledged to business partnerships were announced, including a $350 million initiative to help countries modernise their digital systems, and another $350 million to boost women’s equality and entrepreneurial spirit.

Sources close to the White House say that Joe Biden is preparing a tour of Africa for 2023. His Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, has visited the continent three times in the past year.

It should be emphasised that, in order to make the most of US investment, sustained follow-up, based on the agreements emerging from the Washington Summit, including stronger diplomatic engagement, will be necessary.

Composition of the structure of Remapsen Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea has recently joined the African Press Network for Health and Environment Promotion, Remapsen, through the Network of Journalists United in the Fight against HIV-AIDS in Equatorial Guinea.

The meeting on 17th December to create the Remapsen structure in Equatorial Guinea was led by Remapsen Coordinator and President of the Network of Journalists United in the Fight against HIV-AIDS, Clemente Ela Ondo Onguene, together with his deputy, Natividad Maye Santos.

In addition to the appointment of members of the network, the Remapsen National Coordinator also told the meeting about the process of Equatorial Guinea’s accession to the African Press Network for the Promotion of Health and Environment, which took place through a process of evolution of the work carried out.

During the meeting, information was also provided on the functioning of Remapsen, the programming of activities for 2023, and the presentation of the departments involved, such as health and the environment, and international organisations accredited in Equatorial Guinea.

Following the vote, the structure of Remapsen Equatorial Guinea is now made up of 13 members, including the Coordinator and his Deputy, the focal point for radio and audiovisual media, the focal point for health, the focal point for the environment, the focal point for digital press, the focal point for public relations and his deputy, and the focal point for cultural promotion.

The vision of the African Press Network for Health Promotion and Climate Change is that every African has the right to accurate information in the fields of health and the environment. Within the context of the fight against pandemics in Africa, the role of the media is more than crucial when ensuring good communication on prevention and care issues.

Created 20 years ago and recognised at the level of African institutions for health and the environment, Remapsen’s role is to ensure good communication on health and environmental issues.
