Equatorial Guinea (Republica de Guinea Ecuatorial) Minister of Transportation, Technology, Post and Telecommunications, Vicente Ehate Tomi, recently met with U.S. Ambassador to Equatorial Guinea Alberto Fernandez to assess the state of transportation and airport security.

The meeting was an opportunity to further discuss the possibility of receiving technical assistance from U.S. experts on transportation security. Ambassador Fernandez informed the Minister that a delegation of technical experts is scheduled to arrive in the country at the end July.

"We are looking forward to the opportunity to benefit from the technical expertise of the United States. We want to promote the highest levels of safety and security at our airports for the benefit of visitors and citizens alike," Minister Tomi said.

Programs to improve transportation, security and technology are part of a broader reform effort by President Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.
