The Committee of Ambassadors from the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group, which met on 15th May in Brussels, has accepted the Candidacy of Equatorial Guinea to be the global headquarters of South-South and Triangular Cooperation, opening an office in Malabo which will be the nerve centre for the exchange of information for the development of the 79 countries and three continents making up the ACP group.
The decision is now in the hands of the ACP Council of Ministers, which will meet between 26th May and 1st June, where it is hoped the decision will be ratified.
This important office will house an experienced team of experts who will provide support and practical know-how, in order to ensure optimum quality in the exchange of knowledge, and to provide support at the highest political level.
The trust placed by a body of this significance further legitimises the stability of Equatorial Guinea. It is a great opportunity to continue with the process of opening which is going to benefit tourism, trade and the economy which is developing, in order to position ourselves in the near future as a new emerging economy”, said the Ambassador in Brussels, Carmelo Nvono-Nca.
