On the morning of Wednesday 14th August, the Prime Minister of the Government, Charged with Administrative Coordination, Francisco Pascual Obama Asue, held two separate audiences at the Delegation for Foreign Affairs in Bata. The first was with a representation from the World Bank Group, led by Jean Claude Tchatchouang, Executive Director for 23 African countries, including Equatorial Guinea, while the second meeting was with the new UNDP resident representative, Elsie Laurence Chounoune.
In the first meeting, Jean Claude Tcharthouang, Executive Director of the Executive Board of the World Bank Group, declared that the aim of his visit to Equatorial Guinea was to see first hand the current economic and financial situation in the country, so that once in possession of the information, he could redirect the support that the World bank could provide in order to contribute towards the needs of Equatorial Guinea under Horizonte 2035.
Following that, Obama Asue received the Resident Representative of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Elsie Laurence, who came to the audience firstly to introduce herself to the Prime Minister of the Government as the new UNDP Resident Representative, and secondly, to look at the areas and projects in which the programme could collaborate for the sustainable development of the country.
