Hydrocarbons & Industry Forum to Highlight Equatorial Guinea’s Investment Opportunities for India

The Equatorial Guinea – India Hydrocarbons & Industry Forum aims to highlight Equatorial Guinea’s investment environment and strong economic ties between the two countries.

Equatorial Guinea will showcase many attractive investment opportunities to Indian financiers this week. For example, the PEGI 2020, with the four pillars of agriculture, fisheries, tourism and finance, and energy, is part of Equatorial Guinea’s Horizon 2020 development program. Indian companies with experience in any and all of these sectors are openly invited to invest.

The Industrial City of Mbini, an independent economic zone in the mainland region of Rio Muni for international firms, is another opportunity for individuals and firms. The City offers an efficient application process through a single agency; secure investment and legal framework; infrastructure; and access to Equatorial Guinea and Central Africa’s biggest markets.

The Luba Petroleum City, based on Bioko Island, provides a range of services to regional oil and gas operators. The City develops logistics activities throughout the Gulf of Guinea, providing downstream opportunities for many small and medium-sized enterprises.

The REPEGE is the Government’s Petrochemicals Revolution to make the country globally competitive by increasing value from oil and gas production. Investors are welcomed to get involved in this vast sector as well.

The Equatorial Guinea – India Hydrocarbons & Industry Forum will take place in New Delhi on January 22 to promote investment opportunities in the energy, hydrocarbons and industrial sectors of Equatorial Guinea. The Forum is hosted by the Ministry of Mines, Industry and Energy.
