Under the auspices of the Ministry of Mines and Hydrocarbons and led by the African Energy Chamber, “Equatorial Guinea 2020 Year of Investment” is aimed at attracting foreign direct investment into key industries in Equatorial Guinea that will diversify the country’s economy, boost entrepreneurship, generate profit for investors and create jobs.

This will be achieved through showcasing several of the preeminent opportunities in Equatorial Guinea and Africa’s energy industry, including oil refineries, an ammonia plant, a gas import terminal and other projects spanning the energy value chain.
