Leadership Series: Equatorial Guinea

September 22, 2021

Bilateral Chamber hosted His Excellency Gabriel M. Obiang Lima, Minister of Mines and Hydrocarbons of Equatorial Guinea, for an exclusive conversation highlighting Equatorial Guinea's energy transformation and emerging opportunities.

The Minister used the Chamber's virtual platform to announce a new vision for the oil and gas sector in his country and the region.  He highlighted significant reforms, including a new petroleum law and upcoming bids with attractive profit sharing arrangements. He also discussed unique opportunities in the mining sector including bitcoin mining.

With the world’s largest free trade area and a 1.2 billion-person market, the continent of Africa is creating an entirely new development path, harnessing the potential of its resources and people.
