On Friday 17th May at the College of Lawyers in Madrid, an interesting academic meeting took place of the group of countries that could in the future become the G5. This is a grouping that brings together one country from each continent which meets the characteristics of being small but with large potential in terms of economics and resources.
The seminars, which were organised under the umbrella of the Society of International Studies (SIS), were attended by Equatorial Guinea as the African country, represented by its Ambassador in Brussels, Carmelo Nvono-Nca.
In his speech, Nvono-Nca recalled that in 2014, during the trip to Brussels by the Equatorial Guinea Head of State, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, “he already had the initiative to seek a mechanism to make visible the potential of small countries to face the political and economic adversities on a global level. Following five years of intense work between the SIS and the Equatorial Guinea Embassy in Brussels we have arrived at this meeting, which aims to set out the bases for an international alliance of big little countries. The aim is to defend our sovereignties and our interests with respect to international law”.
A further meeting, to which other nations meeting the same characteristics will be invited, is due to be held before September.
