On 6th March, the accredited Ambassador from the Republic of Equatorial Guinea before the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP), Tito Mba Ada, accompanied by personnel from the embassy and the colony of Equatoguinean residents in the city of SetA�bal, acted in solidarity through the planting of trees in the municipality of Proenca-a-Nova, a place some 160 km from the capital, Lisbon, as an initiative to quickly re-establish part of the heritage that was destroyed recently in fires in the area.
These fires, which caused great sadness among the Portuguese population due to the deaths of various people, prompted the solidarity of the people of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, expressed on this occasion by our Ambassador and his collaborators and compatriots.
What initially appeared to be a small initiative has become, surprisingly, a highly appreciated gesture by the Portuguese citizens and politicians, who expressed their thanks to our country.
The mayor of the town expressed his willingness to twin his town with one in Equatorial Guinea, and to strengthen business, cultural and educational cooperation with our country.
The visit concluded with the presentation of a plaque of the shield of our country for the mayor of the town, and the provision of a lunch for the Equatoguinean delegation.
