May 11, 2017 Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
The governments of Equatorial Guinea and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will gather at the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce in Jeddah May 10, 2017 for the first ever Equatorial Guinea-Saudi Arabia Economic Forum. The economic forum seeks to identify investment opportunities and bolster trade ties between the two nations in core economic sectors such as mining, hydrocarbons, agriculture and fisheries.
The Equatorial Guinea-Saudi Arabia Economic Forum capitalizes on the success of the Fourth Arab-Africa Summit, which was organized by the African Union and held in Sipopo, Equatorial Guinea in November 2016 under the patronage of H.E. the President. The summit attracted heads of state and political leaders from the African continent and Middle East
As proud host of the Arab-Africa Summit, Equatorial Guinea has been successfully strengthening ties with the Arab world. In October 2016, it signed a memorandum of understanding with the Government of Kuwait regulating bilateral relations between the two countries.
