The Presentation Workshop of the Second Drafts of the Millennium Development Goal (MDGs) was held in Malabo from April 9 to 10. The work was carried out in the Hotel Sofitel Sipopo Le Golf, aiming to show and discuss the content of these sectoral reports, which will be merged in an official document that a high delegation led by the Head of State, H.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, will present in September at the UN.
This workshop, which was inaugurated on April 9 by the Secretary General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Carmelo Micha Nguema, had the aim of preparing the national report on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) of this current year, and of analyzing closely the work of these eight goals. The works have been presented by the national consultants to prepare the national report, which in turn will be presented at the upcoming world summit at the UN, by a high delegation led by the President of the Republic, H.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, in the month of September.
The Ministry of Economy, Planning and Public Investments, responsible for the project, together with national experts and consultants from the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), spent the days of April 9 and 10 discussing and jointly aligning the contents of the second draft of sectoral reports, which were reviewed in detail for approval at the technical level.
During the presentation, Micha Nguema first gave thanks for the work of the consultants and participants in the seminar. Second, he said the workshop results should be analyzed with caution, since the final report will be presented to the higher authorities and the Head of State.
For his part, the Director General of Planning, Bienvenido Osa Micha Eseng, intervened to say that the work on the MDGs involves many Government departments; so it was necessary that each consultant explain the contents of the documents presented to the attendees.
In his brief chat with reporters from www.guineaecuatorialpress.com, after the workshop, the Director described the work of the Government and the growth and development of Equatorial Guinea in areas such as reducing child and maternal mortality as positive.
