The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Agapito Mba Mokuy, received in his office at the ministerial headquarters in Malabo, ambassadors from the People’s Republic of China, Chen Gouyou, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, Tong Chol Ho, and Brazil, Evaldo Freire.
During the audience between the Ambassador from the People’s Republic of China to Equatorial Guinea, Chen Gouyou, and the Minister for Foreign Affairs, the two spoke about matters relating to cooperation between China and Equatorial Guinea.
In the near future the Chinese Embassy and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs will hold a meeting of the mixed commission to promote cooperation in various sectors, such as tourism and air transport, in order to establish direct flights from Malabo to Beijing, and promote free trade between the two countries.
The Brazilian Ambassador, Evaldo Freire, in conversation with the press following his meeting with Agapito Mba Mokuy, stated that: “We are once again replacing our activities with further cooperation, because we spoke about the possibility of signing an agreement regarding the education sector. We also spoke about cooperation in the agricultural sector, and how to develop Brazilian cooperation with respect to civil protection. We believe we are going to undertake many activities, above all because the two countries belong to the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP), and we have a vast field of cooperation that we are continuing to implement; and it would significant to give more relevance to cooperation in education, for the training of Portuguese teachers and Portuguese language experts. This, without doubt, will be one of the most important aspects of our cooperation”.
The meeting with Tong Chol Ho, the new ambassador of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, was the first he had held with Mba Mokuy, to whom he presented his credentials, prior to the formal presentation of his credentials before the President of the Republic, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.
