The Permanent Representative of Equatorial Guinea to the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in London, Carmelo Nvono-Ncá, has visited the Embassy of the United States in the British capital to assess the presidential candidates.
Thus, he met with Jared Banks, Counselor of the Embassy, Guy Lawson, Science and Technology Officer, and Kari Jaksa, Political Officer, to discuss a series of highly topical and important issues, among which was the campaign of the elections that will take place in just a few days. Along these lines, he presented the electoral programs and made an assessment of the presidential candidates, highlighting the extensive experience of the current President Obiang, candidate for the PDGE, his defense of the country’s interests and his ability to position Equatorial Guinea within the countries most modern in Africa.
Beyond dealing with the electoral campaign in Equatorial Guinea, Ambassador Nvono-Ncá discussed with the senior officials of the United States Embassy other matters of great importance, such as the excellent relations that have always prevailed between the two nations. Bilateral relations between Equatorial Guinea and the United States have focused above all on US investment deals in Equatorial Guinea to obtain raw materials. The North American country is one of the largest investors in Equatorial Guinea, which has been very important for the country, since it has allowed it to greatly improve its GDP.
Likewise, Nvono-Ncá personally conveyed Equatorial Guinea’s interest in counting on the cooperation and help of all friendly countries of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea with great experience in maritime security, as is the case of the United States. “Equatorial Guinea greatly appreciates the cooperation and collaboration that it has always received from the US Government since 1979,” said the Ambassador.
