Equatorial Guinea – A country whose development grows day by day

Equatorial Guinea gained independence on October 12, 1968 after 190 years of Spanish rule. President Teodoro Obiang Ngiang Mbasogo has led the country since 1979 and driven development with resounding success. In the US, Equatorial Guinea has representation in Washington, D.C., New York and Houston.

Equatorial Guinea has experienced rapid economic growth due to the discovery of large offshore oil reserves, and in the last decade has become Sub-Saharan Africa's third largest oil exporter. Equatorial Guinea is located on the western coast of central Africa. Its capital and main port, Malabo, is located on the island of Bioko, off the coast of Cameroon. The mainland territory of Equatorial Guinea is bordered by Cameroon and Gabon. The principal city on the mainland is Bata. The official language is Spanish.
