As part of the quest to deepen sub-regional integration in Central Africa and bail the Central African Economic and Monetary Community out of the COVID-19 shock, President Paul Biya recently dispatched the Minister of Economy, Planning and Regional Development, Alamine Ousmane Mey, to his Equatoguinean counterpart, President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.
“It is a well-known tradition among heads of state to regularly discuss the state of the Sub-region, in particular in view of the situation of CEMAC in this period of COVID-19,” Mey told reporters after the meeting.
“A consultation at this level is necessary both on the subject of the pandemic and its consequences and on the security situation in the sub-region.”
The Economy Minister also expressed the will of the two leaders to make CEMAC an emerging and prosperous community.
Present during the meeting was the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Equatorial Guinea, Simeón Oyono Esono, and Cameroon’s Ambassador to the neighbouring country, Jean Claude Manguele.
The visit to Equatorial Guinea is the latest in a series of similar ones to CEMAC member States. President Biya recently dispatched envoys to Chad, Congo and Gabon with sealed messages to laeeders of those countries.
