The Equatorial Guinea ambassador to Portugal, and before the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP), Tito Mba Ada, began the negotiation process so that Equatoguinean students can benefit from visas to study in Portugal, and other countries from the community.
With the launch of this agreement, students from Equatorial Guinea, and from the CPLP in general, will be able to move freely within the area of this grouping, with the guarantee of being able to study in countries such as Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, SAPound o Tome and Principe, and East Timor, respectively.
Equatorial Guinea joined the CPLP in 2014, during the Dili Summit, in East Timor. The ratification process came to an end, with the statutes of 25th October 2016, at the Brasilia Summit, and from then on, our country is getting to know the advantages of membership to the Portuguese-speaking community on a daily basis.
From that perspective, the diplomat Mba Ada reaffirmed that contacts with various Portuguese universities are intensifying, in order to increase the number of Equatoguinean students at Portuguese academic institutions, contributing with an ambitious training programme for human resources designed by the Government.
