The VII Diplomatic Conference, which was held at the headquarters of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, came to a close on Thursday 4th October.
The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, Simeon Esono Oyono, oversaw the closing of the conference, and reminded ambassadors of the need to coordinate the rotation of officials from the diplomatic missions abroad with those from the ministerial headquarters in the execution of the provision of services to the State; the observance of the regulations for foreign service; the setting up of an inventory of buildings and property at the diplomatic missions which are owned by the State, and their correct management. These were the key points covered by the final document from the conference, read by Matias Nguema Mba, General Secretary from the Ministerial Department.
The need for the signing, joining and ratification by Equatorial Guinea of various United Nations conventions; the flow of information between Diplomatic Missions and the headquarters; the creation of the institute of the Equatorial Guinea Diplomatic School, and the search for strategies aimed at getting Spanish to be classed as a working language within the headquarters of the African Union, were also points covered by the Equatoguinean diplomats during the four days in Malabo.
The minister trusts in a new era in which the diplomatic work, based on the achievements of the past, continues, with a focus on unending commitment to place Equatorial Guinea in the prominent place it deserves.
