VISIT Equatorial Guinea

guinée équatoriale country

The territory of Equatorial Guinea includes the islands of Bioko and Annobon and the mainland enclave of Rio Muni, which is bordered to the north by Cameroon and to the south and east by Gabon. Included in Rio Muni are the small islands of Corisco, Elobey Grande, Elobey Chico, Mbañe, Cocoteros and the numerous small islets in Corisco Bay. The total surface area of the country is approximately 28,000 km².

The population of the country is now over 1 million with an annual growth rate of 2.5%. One third of the population lives in the urban areas, mainly in the capital of Malabo on the island of Bioko and in Bata, the largest town on the mainland. Spanish and French are the official languages but English is widely spoken. The nation includes five main ethnic groups, the Bubi, the Ndowe, the Annoboneses, the Bisio and the Fang which is the largest (83%). Each ethnic group has its own dialect.

The climate is tropical with two seasons (one dry and one wet) in Bioko and four seasons (two dry and two wet) in Rio Muni. The average temperature is 25°C in Malabo and Bata, but the average temperature is lower in some seasons in the interior of Rio Muni. The humidity is usually high (92%) in Malabo. The islands of Bioko and Annobon are mountainous. The continental enclave, Rio Muni, has a coastal plain and a mountainous interior. www.guineaecuatorialpress.com | www.ceiba-guinea-ecuatorial.org|

The President 

Head of State of Equatorial Guinea: Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo

guinée equatorial president

H.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo

The President of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea occupies the Head of State, embodies the National Unity and represents the entirety of the Nation. He is the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forcesof State Security. He is elected through direct, secret and universal suffrage by a relative majority of validly issued votes for a mandate of seven renewable years.

Among the duties of the President of the Republic are found that of calling and presiding over the Council of Ministers, appointing the Prime Minister and the members of the Government, approving the laws issued by the House of Representatives of the People, dissolving the Parliament, etc.

Since August 3, 1979, the Presidency of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea has been occupied by H.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo. His intervention in overthrowing the President Francisco Macías, during whose dictatorship the country suffered a period of internal isolation, crimes and massive exiles, led him to assume the first Presidency in 1979. Since then Equatorial Guinea has enjoyed the most productive period of peace, stability and development in its history, being today one of the countries with the highest per capita income of Africa and one of those that has the most advanced and modern infrastructures. presidencia-ge.org |

Invest in Equatorial Guinea

Equatorial Guinea, whose gross domestic product depends entirely on oil revenues has decided with the anointing of the president and the entire government to diversify its economies. thus several sectors have been identified as a priority sector. To meet the needs of the population and also project Equatorial Guinea as emerging county in 2020. This policy requires the establishment of a policy of modernization of the state of Equatorial Guinea and the diversification of the longer based on oil income economy.  www.angehorizonte2020.com | www.emergingeg.com |

Your Business In Equatorial Guinea :Tenders and opportunities

key sectors for worldwide investors : energy (solar, hydro, biomass, renewable ..), infrastructure, roads, natural resources, mining, agriculture, forestry, telecommunications, tourism and ecotourism, responsible tourism, education, research, health, fisheries, transport:


Guinée équatorial AgricultureAgriculture represents 1.1% of GDP. Subsistence farming is the predominant occupation in Equatorial Guinea but meets only 30% of local needs. With thousands of square kilometers of undeveloped arable land and high domestic and regional demand, Equatorial Guinea possesses considerable opportunities for growth along the entire agriculture & livestock value chain.

The share of cash crops is decreasing, including coffee, timber and cocoa crops, which peaked at 859 tons in 2011 versus the 3,000 tons produced in 2007-08. The government has made efforts to increase production of these products to pre-independence levels. Other local agricultural products include rice, yams, cassava, bananas, and palm oil.

Opportunities in Agriculture

  • Transformation of feed and fertilizer
  • Cocoa and coffee processing
  • Soap Manufacturing
  • Processing of juices and derivatives
  • Cassava flour mill
  • Salted fish industry
  • Sugar and salt factory
  • Agriculture Farms
  • Transformation of palm oil and coconut oil
  • Packaging, processing, and preservation of halieutic products
  • Canning (tomatoes etc..)


Guinée équatorial fisheriesEquatorial Guinea is in the process of developing its fisheries industry and becoming the leading fisheries supplier in the CEMAC region and beyond.

Industrial fishing, including the availability of fishing equipment, has suffered from disorganization and saw its production drop from 270 tons in 2008 to less than 200 tons in 2010.

But with 300 kms of coastline and roughly 400 kms of EEZ & territorial waters (which includes 9/10th of the country’s entire land and sea territory, and is abundant in fish) as well as an abundance of commercially valuable marine species, Equatorial Guinea is ripe for investment in the fisheries industry.

gunée équatorial oilEquatorial Guinea is the top oil supplier for the CEMAC region and the third largest supplier for all of Africa. Oil production reached 340,450 barrels per day (bpd) in 2011, including 20,450 bpd of liquids. It has declined in recent years due to the maturity of six oilfields (Zafiro, Okoume, Alba, Ceiba, Jade and Serpentina). Proven reserves total 1.2 billion barrels, equivalent to about 10 years of production at current rates. Eight new oil exploration contracts have been signed recently, four onshore (including on Rio Muni mainland), among which three are likely to give rise to their first perforations by the end of 2014. Now, Equatorial Guinea is moving to develop its entire petrochemical value chain and is working with the private sector to create a highly developed and vertically integrated domestic industry.


Guinée équatorial gasNatural gas is developing as a serious alternative to declining oil production, provided the productivity of its exploitation can be improved. The production of methanol, butane, propane, LPG and LNG in particular has increased significantly, from 37,300 equivalent barrels per day (ebpj) in 2006 to 143,200 ebpj in 2009 ebpj. Gas should represent 50% of total hydrocarbons resources by 2016.

In keeping with soaring global demand, the Equatorial Guinean government intends to make the country a regional gas hub. In 2007, Equatorial Guinea built its first liquefied natural gas (LNG) train. After 8 years of development and construction, a second LNG train dedicated entirely to local gas resources will be operational in 2016. The goal is to build a system to collect natural gas from fields currently in operation (Zafiro, Alba and Alen as of 2013) as well as from future fields. This gas will be processed at Equatorial Guinea’s port Punta Europa.

Three major projects are underway: a new LNG plant that will process 3.4 million tons of LNG per year; the AMPCO plant which will produce 1 million tons of methanol per year; and an Alba plant of liquefied petroleum (1300 bpd of propane, 7,000 bpd of butane and 6,000 bpd of condensate).



Gold panning

guinée équatoriale gold panning

Panning for gold

The rivers of Rio Muni are worked by local artisans using simple panning and wooden sluice technologies. Previous commercial investigations have concentrated on the three main areas of artisanal workings – Coro, Aconibe, and Mongomo and there are several other known occurrences that have been worked. Historical records are incomplete, but at least 2300 kg (74,000 0z) of gold was produced from the Coro area alone in the mid-70’s.

The alluvial gold is relatively coarse grained, occurring as either dendritic or rounded nuggets, mostly in the 350-180um size range, although larger nuggets up to 4mm x 8 mm are relatively common. The common occurrence of the gold with vein-quartz, clays, and lateritic minerals attests to the proximity and variable types of bedrock gold mineralisation which have yet to be delineated.

Diamond parcel 2Heavy-mineral sampling results have identified zinc-rich chromites in the Nsork area, similar to those found in the diamondiferous lamproite dyke swarm at Mitzic (Gabon), 50km to the southeast. Remote sensing and limited outcrop mapping show the dyke swarm trending into the southeastern corner of Rio Muni. Furthermore, exploration in Gabon for both gold and diamonds has identified trails of indicator minerals and diamond right up to the southern borders of Rio Muni. Detailed exploration work is required in the Nsork area to establish the primary sources of the diamonds.

Mineralisation has been defined in the Aconibe and Ayamiken areas by Nb and Ta soil anomalies and by the presence of heavy minerals commonly associated with Nb-Ta-bearing pegmatites. Neither area has been explored in great detail and thus they represent early stage exploration prospects for pegmatites and skarn systems associated with PanAfrican granitic intrusions. The Aconibe occurrence comprises discrete, laterally extensive pegmatites that are also overlain by eluvial and alluvial deposits yielding grades of 3.0 to 7.5kg/m3. Sample assays have demonstrated niobium-rich columbo-tantalite (62.36% Nb205) with subordinate tantalum (18.74% Ta205).

Other mineral potential 
Widespread lateritisation and indications of bauxitic laterite, with grades up to 58.3% Al203, and 2.1 % to 5.3% SiO2, indicate some potential for bauxite. Anomalous values of base metals, U, As, Ag, Mn and Mo have been detected in laterite above black shales in the Noya Series which is part of the West Congolian foreland basin. This has known base metal deposits immediately to the south in Gabon, and is also equivalent in age to the Katangan sequences of the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia. Basic intrusives have been mapped in southern Rio Muni, that may be a northern extension of the Kinguélé ultrabasics trend of northern Gabon, which contains known Ni-PGE mineralisation. Serpentinised ultramafics in central Rio Muni are as yet untested exploration prospects with some potential for base metals and platinoid elements.


Guinée équatoriale energyIn order to position itself as a regional center for transport and electricity supply, the country has significantly improved its port and airport facilities to become a hub for regional transport of goods and passengers. The port of Malabo was built to accommodate ships of 16 meters draft and a load capacity of 10,000 containers. It can serve as a stopover for ships from Asia and Europe to West and Central Africa. Such upgrades in infrastructure enable the country to take advantage of it favorable strategic location and access to a market of more than 130 million people.

In the energy sector, capacity was increased by 120 MW with the implementation of three additional turbines to central Punta Europa, on Bioko Island near Malabo, a step that made island energy-sufficient. Sendji, a hydroelectric power plant that will supply an extra 200 MW, is expected to be commissioned by 2015, generating a surplus to export to Cameroon and Gabon.
