Equatorial Guinea Launches Official Government’s Website In French

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea recently added the French language to the official government’s website. The government’s portal can now be accessed in Spanish, English and French, which is the country’s second official language. This is an effort by the government to improve its communications, add to the resources offered by the country, and increase its information delivery for the 17th African Union Summit taking place in Malabo June 23-July 1 with the theme “Accelerating Youth Empowerment for Sustainable Development.”.

This is a strong contribution to the country’s progress and to improve its ties to its neighboring countries members of the Economic and Monetary Community of Central Africa (CEMAC), where French is the official language.

Since the government website’s launch nearly two years ago, the online portal has reached 458,641 views this past month. The French language will increase the government’s website outreach to a wider community.
