As we have been reporting for some months, the Dutch company Euroc is interested in developing the great potential of Equatorial Guinea and undertaking within its borders what they describe as the largest port project in Africa. The board of directors of the large company is expected to travel to our country soon.
This global project has a good chance of becoming the great Equatorial Guinea project of this centuryCarmelo Nvono-Ncá
Specifically, Euroc, one of the most powerful port companies in the world, intends to carry out in Equatorial Guinea a possible project aimed at restructuring, improving and strengthening the country’s ports. Due to the importance of a country’s ports, as the center of the economic impulse of a nation with as much access to the sea as is the case of Equatorial Guinea, this project also provides for the development of other sectors in parallel, something tremendously important for economic diversification from the country. In order to advance in the confirmation of this important project, the Ambassador of Equatorial Guinea in the Netherlands, Carmelo Nvono-Ncá, has met with Emma Solomons Okechukwu, Head of Africa for Euroc.
At the meeting, apart from specifying the direct and indirect benefits that the largest port project in Africa can generate, details were also specified for the next trip to Equatorial Guinea to be carried out by the board of this company. The objective is that in this trip they know first-hand the ports chosen to develop the great project, the main needs and the most important challenges. Likewise, a high-level agenda is planned with the main authorities of the Government of Equatorial Guinea in charge of the port sector and large infrastructure projects to agree on the last details of an agreement that will allow Euroc to execute in our country the largest port project in Africa the next 20 or 30 years.
The Euroc Group has a very consolidated market in Africa, currently operating part of the services of ports such as Cotonou and Lagos, very close to Equatorial Guinea.
