The Minister for Culture, Tourism and Craft Promotion, Rufino Ndong Esono Nchama, met his Chinese counterpart, Luo Shugang, in order to map out the agreements recently reached during the III China-Africa Economic Forum.
On 4th September the III China-Africa Economic Forum came to a close in Beijing. The forum was attended by a Senior Delegation led by the Head of State, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, and what emerged was the Beijing Declaration and Plan of Action.
Within this context, Rufino Ndong Esono Nchama was received by his Chinese counterpart in the city of Dunhuang, in order to set out actions on cooperation between the two nations in these fields, with the aim of continuing to strengthen the ties of friendship shared by the two Republics for over forty years.
For that reason, the Minister for Culture, Tourism and Craft Promotion requested the agreement of China in the development of these sectors, which already have in the construction of the Confucius Institute in Equatorial Guinea the first expressions of permeation in cultural matters.
These actions are joined by fresh collaboration in the tourism sector, which is to culminate in a trip to Equatorial Guinea by a group of Chinese authorities and entrepreneurs, in order to evaluate the tourism and cultural potential of our country, and thus lead to an increase in Chinese investment and tourists.
