Three media organisations from the People’s Republic of China asked about the political, social and economic situation in the country, in an interview held with the Head of State, S. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, on 29th January.
The President of the Republic granted an interview to three media organisations from the Asian giant, in order to speak about the failed terrorist attack of 24th December, and the pros and cons of free circulation of people and goods within the Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa (CEMAC) area, and the diversification of the national economy, with particular emphasis on the tourism sector.
The Real Equatorial Guinea magazine and the television channels CCTV and CTNG heard the opinions of the leader of the nation regarding the negative image that some press channels release to the detriment of many African countries where the governments are working on policies of emancipation and development. The President also sent a message to the Equatoguinean people, following the events of 24th December.
H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo said that the development of Africa and its nations, thanks to the use of its rich natural resources, is the envy of the powers that create destabilising actions among Africans themselves, and he called for people to be aware of this and work to put the interests of our continent first.
Furthermore, he praised the policies of the People’s Republic of China, which maintains diplomatic relations without interfering in the sovereignty of any nation.
Regarding national economic diversification, the Head of State defined it as the task of creating new economic sources aimed at self-sufficiency in economic administration, and took the tourism sector as his reference, as one of those which provided annual increasing income, due to the potential of our country.
With a message of calm to offset the constant attacks by internal and external enemies, the President of the Republic concluded the interview by thanking them for their interest in wishing to spread the truth about the people of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea.
