Equatorial Guinea Makes Final Preparations For Third ASA Summit

MALABO, Equatorial Guinea, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Government of Equatorial Guinea is making final preparations for the third Summit of Africa and South America (ASA), which will take place this week in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea.

After visiting several South American countries two weeks ago, Agapito Mba Mokuy, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, met with those organizing the ASA Summit to discuss the final details.  

The summit will run from Wednesday, February 20th to Saturday, February 23 rd. The opening session involves a meeting between Senior Officials followed by the Meeting of Ministers. On Friday, the Heads of States from various African and South American countries will meet to conclude the summit and discuss South-South cooperation. Leaders attending include Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff and Evo Morales, President of Bolivia. 

According to Mba Mokuy, representatives from member countries will be invited to participate in a variety of cultural events that will take place throughout the course of the summit, including art exhibits, film sessions and musical performances.

In addition to promoting cultural expression among the member countries, the summit will also provide businessmen a chance to meet with one another and discuss additional opportunities for exchange and improved relations.

Equatorial Guinea originally planned to have the ASA Summit in May 2012; however, they had to postpone the event in order to finalize preparations and ensure the summit's success. In November 2011, Equatorial Guinea hosted the Meeting of the Council of Ministers of the Forum, which involved a meeting between Senior Officials to promote cooperation and solidarity between Africa and South America.

About Equatorial Guinea The Republic of Equatorial Guinea ( República de Guinea Ecuatorial) is the only Spanish-speaking country in Africa, and one of the smallest nations on the continent. In the late-1990s, American companies helped discover the country's oil and natural gas resources, which only within the last five years began contributing to the global energy supply. Equatorial Guinea is now working to serve as a pillar of stability and security in its region of West Central Africa. The country hosted the 2011 Summit of the African Union.
