Equatorial Guinea's Ambassador to the United States discusses relations with the United States

In an interview, Equatorial Guinea's Ambassador to the United States, Ruben Maye Nsue Mangue, discussed his country's relationship with the U.S. and how that relationship has matured and deepened in recent years. 

Development and investment, he said, are two important focal points for the relationship. “In our relations, the most important issue is development, but development in different aspects. Development in political terms of the Government of Equatorial Guinea and the United States, they have a permanent dialogue about our democratic process,” noted Nsue Mangue. 

He continued to say, “Our governments are also discussing issues related to the improvement of the investment climate, so that American companies not only from oil and gas but from other sectors like agriculture, tourism, can invest in Equatorial Guinea.”

He concluded by saying, “I think what is most important is that we can talk about any issue because we are open. We are a small country and the U.S. is a country with the most experience and we are very optimistic about the future of our relations and cooperation.”
