Last week, a delegation of senators from Equatorial Guinea, comprised by Augustin Nze Nfumu and Buenaventura Monsuy Asumu, was present in the Belgian capital with the objective of attending the meetings of the Joint Parliamentary Assembly of the ACP-EU (Africa, Caribbean, Pacific – European Union).
Taking advantage of their stay, the Equatorial Guinean Ambassador in Brussels, Carmelo Nvono Nca, prepared an exhaustive work agenda so that the delegation, comprised by the senators Augustin Nze Nfumu and Buenaventura Monsuy Asumu, could make the most of their visit to the heart of European politics and diplomacy.
Thus, on March 18, they were received by the President of the Parliament of the Wallonie-Bruxelles Federation, Philippe Courard, who welcomed the two senators, and held a private meeting with them in which it was agreed to reinforce the good relations between the two chambers, as well as to initiate a common, proactive and fruitful dialogue.
Next, the head of the delegation, Agustin Nze Nfumu, had the opportunity to sign the guest book of the Belgian Parliament.
After the private meeting, Courard invited the mission to attend the plenary assembly, in which a historic moment was experienced, since for the first time the President of a Parliament of a European country officially and formally presented Equatorial Guinean senators before the entire Chamber, which on that day had present practically all the political forces representative of Belgium.
The success of this meeting, the result of more than a year of work by the Diplomatic Mission in Brussels, resides in the influence of the Belgian country within the EU, and especially of its Chamber of Deputies, in key institutions such as the European Parliament. Without doubt, it was a golden opportunity to make visible, in such a relevant European organization, the achievements of Equatorial Guinea on the international scale.
