Following the official launch of the candidacy of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea on 12th April for the position of non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council for the 2018-2019 period, the Ambassador Permanent Representative from our country before the UN, Anatolio Ndong Mba, was invited on 27th April, in the city of New York, to a symposium on the strategies of global education SDG 4, where he gave a speech in which he asked for the vote and trust in favour of Equatorial Guinea.
This is the first time that Equatorial Guinea has run for non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, with the sole aim of contributing towards the resolution of conflicts on an international level, as the world needs its problems to be resolved through peace and dialogue, in order to achieve the objectives outlined in Agenda 2030 for sustainable development, according to the words of Mdong Mba, in his speech.
In the presence of senior regional members from the education sector, teachers and entrepreneurs who are opting for an exemplary model for global education, the ambassador declared that the Equatoguinean Government, through the Department for Education, has been promoting training through the establishment of initiatives for exchange programmes in the sector, with a focus on basic studies and courses in other areas, such as agriculture, social and human sciences, medicine, business, and technology.
The diplomat also underlined that in order to achieve the aims outlined by the organisation in the medium and long term, Malabo has committed to the inclusion of quality education for the 2030 and 2063 agendas.
