As we have been reporting for several months, Equatorial Guinea is a firm favourite to become the headquarters for South-South and Triangular Cooperation within the Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group.
Our Minister for Fishing and Water Resources, Estanislao Don Malavo is currently in Brussels, and has not wasted the opportunity to visit the General Secretary of the ACP, Patrick I. Gomes, in order to boost the candidacy of our country for housing this important headquarters, which will be the nerve centre for information on all South-South and Triangular Cooperation matters for the 79 countries making up the ACP.
The minister did not forget to highlight the development efforts in our country, as it would be willing to donate the building for the headquarters, together with all the equipment for the future offices.
A meeting will soon take place before the celebration of the ACP Ministers’ Council in May, in which it is expected that the organisation will make a final decision regarding the Equatorial Guinea candidacy.
