This is what the Permanent Representative of Equatorial Guinea to the OEACP, Carmelo Nvono-Ncá, has learned during a meeting held at the General Secretariat of the OEACP, in Brussels, in which he was accompanied at all times by the Focal Point to the South-South and Triangular Cooperation’s Office, Emilia Ndoho, who in turn is one of the assistants of Ambassador Nvono-Ncá.
Equatorial Guinea will respond with confidence, enthusiasm and enthusiasm with all its obligations so that this South-South and Triangular Cooperation’s Office would be center from which collective self-reliance among developing countries is promoted and strengthened.
In this important meeting, in which the aspects of the agreement by which Equatorial Guinea has officially become the headquarters of the South-South and Triangular Cooperation’s Office were reviewed, not only Niyongabo was present, but also the Secretary General of the OEACP, George Rebelo Pinto Chikoti, and the Undersecretary of the Macroeconomics Department, Tchale Banata Sow.
After ten years of tough negotiations from Brussels, Ambassador Nvono-Ncá obtained in 2018 the approval of the opening of this important office, which will mean a before and after for cooperation between the countries of the South and which will position Equatorial Guinea as a benchmark in international politics.
