On Tuesday 5th march, the Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Bonifacio Mitogo Bindang, received in his office at the ministerial headquarters the Belgian Minister of State Charged with Special Missions, Francois Xavier de Donnea, who was accompanied by senior officials from COMIFAC.
During the conversations, Francois Xavier de Donnea revealed to Bonifacio Mitogo Bindang the intention of his institution that Equatorial Guinea could next June organise a specific summit of the Central Africa Forestry Commission (COMIFAC), at which they will debate the policies to adopt with respect to the maintenance of forest ecosystems, biodiversity and the training of qualified human resources. The aim is to face the disagreements on climate change, taking into account that the Congo basin, of which Equatorial Guinea is a part, is one of the “lungs of the world” with respect to biodiversity.
For that reason, the two parties have cleared the way to the possibility of beginning the training of human resources in various spheres of diplomacy and international relations.
For his part, Mitogo Bindang welcomed the initiatives of the visitors, while expressing the willingness of the Government to strengthen relations between Malabo and Brussels along any line of cooperation.
