Two important meetings were on the work schedule of the PDGE delegation which, led by the Deputy General Secretary, Jesusa Obono Engono, is on a visit to the People’s Republic of China.
On 20th March in Beijing, the PDGE delegation was received by Su Liviping, Vice-Minister from the International Department of the Communist Party of China, at the headquarters of this political grouping.
After greetings between the two figures, the Deputy General Secretary, Jesusa Obono Engono, began his speech on one of the most important issues for the meeting; the diversification of the sources of economic growth in Equatorial Guinea, while the Vice-Minister spoke of the need to open a channel of cooperation in the sector of agricultural development, and strengthen the project in the textile sector with the training of various Equatoguinean women in China, which would also lead to the creation of industries and help reduce unemployment.
Obono Engono Nchama declared his pride in the fact that the PDGE can count on the support of China on its road towards development, thanks to the excellent relations between the two political parties and their presidents, and through the cooperation agreements that the delegation from the Equatoguinean party has developed with new proposals from the Chinese side. The Deputy General Secretary also stressed the request to increase the number of study grants for young Equatoguineans, and the number of graduates per year from the National University of Equatorial Guinea, which have now surpassed three thousand.
For her part, the Vice-Minister began her speech by welcoming the warm welcome she received on her trip to Equatorial Guinea in 2016, and praised the development that the Equatoguinean people are seeing, with increasingly more modern infrastructures.
At around 15:30, the party delegation held an interactive session with the executive sub-director general of the Bureau for Africa, Wang Hemin, in which they looked at development experiences in China. PDGE delegates followed Wang Hemin’s explanations closely.
At the meeting they once again touched on the issue of training for human resources, when the sub-director general mentioned the possibility of increasing the number of grants.
