The Equatorial Guinea Ambassador in Brussels, Carmelo Nvono-Nca, held an important meeting on 25th January at the General Secretary’s Office of the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group in Brussels.
The Ambassador, accompanied by the Second Secretary, Silvestre Oyono, delivered a message that the President of the Republic, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, had sent to the ACP General Secretary. The envelope contained a commitment from the Equatoguinean State to guarantee the sustainability of the future headquarters of the South-South and Triangular Office of Cooperation, in the event that the ACP chooses our country’s candidacy.
The General Secretary of the organisation, Patrick I. Gomes, recognised the initiative by Equatorial Guinea in wanting to provide this centre, an initiative which began in Malabo in the Sipopo Declaration, following the ACP Summit in 2012.
The Ambassador Nvono-Nca reiterated to the ACP group that our country is ready to create the headquarters, and that the Government is willing to open it immediately if the next group Council of Ministers ratifies this candidacy in its next meeting in Lome (Togo) in the month of May.
The Ambassador in Brussels has been fighting, negotiating and seeking support for six years so that we can have the headquarters for South-South and Triangular Cooperation of the ACP Group, which represents 79 countries on three continents.
