The discovery of abundant oil and gas reserves in the 1990s has put Equatorial Guinea at the top of the ranking of African countries in terms of GDP per capita.
Since then, the country has been utilizing oil and gas revenues to finance major state-of-the-art infrastructure projects throughout the country. Now a critical priority is to diversify the economy beyond the oil and gas sector.
Motivated by an understanding of the role of the private sector as a main engine for growth and job creation, the Government of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea is now inviting international investors to take advantage of the tremendous opportunities offered by its economic diversification and industrialization plan as outlined in the PEGI 2020 (Equatorial Guinea Industrialization Plan) for 2012-2020.
The Symposium will present the government’s vision for this phase and showcase the numerous projects for investment in 5 strategic sectors of agriculture and ranching, fishing, petrochemicals and mining, tourism and financial services.
This forum will convene representatives of business and investment groups from the national, regional and international communities. This is the best opportunity for international investors to learn about Equatorial Guinea’s potential and strategize directly with government officials.
PEGIS 3 MAJOR STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES:
- Diversify the economy
- Improve living standards
- Improve Equatorial Guinea’s competitiveness at the global level
Emerging Equatorial Guinea will gather targeted stakeholders to spur the process of economic diversification.
These key partners will include:
- Senior Government Officials
