According to Article 17 of the Convention of the CEMAC treaty, its Commission is required to report in the plenary sessions of Parliament, to give answers regarding certain information issues for the population of the subregion, as was stated by Rosario Mbasogo Kung Nguidang at the beginning of her speech.
Continuing with her speech, she detailed that the issues that are part of her presentation are currently important in our subregion, including: security in the Central African Republic; the committee against money laundering; the actions of the terrorist group Boko Haram, which currently affects three countries of the subregion, Cameroon, Chad and Central African Republic, and the economic partnership between the European Commission and the ACP countries (African, Caribbean and Pacific) in the CEMAC zone.
The Vice Chairwoman also said that one must analyze the relations between the European Union and Equatorial Guinea, to proceed to new negotiations through diplomatic channels so that our country can join the World Trade Organization.
Also during her speech, Mbasogo Kung Nguidang stressed that after the Summit of Heads of State, to be held next March 2, the resolutions derived from it will allow the implementation of security measures in the subregion and the Gulf of Guinea. In this regard, she concluded that “there is no complete security anywhere in the world, but the Heads of State have adopted the appropriate measures at the Summit of the African Union (AU) in Addis Ababa and the latest that took place in Yaounde for a multifaceted cooperation at the EU level.”
