Equatorial Guinea Strengthens Relations with Singapore

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea strengthened bilateral relations with the Republic of Singapore by the signature of a joint communiqué ratifying the official establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

The agreement is focused on respect for national sovereignty, independence, international treaties, and non-interference in the internal affairs of states, guided by the principles of the Charter of Nations and international law.

Equatorial Guinea and Singapore also agreed to bolster areas of mutual understanding, friendship, and cooperation.

Equatorial Guinea enjoys strong economic relations with Singapore in regards to energy investment. In 2016, the Equatorial Guinea Ministry of Mines and Hydrocarbons traveled to Singapore to raise investment prospects during its oil and gas licensing round.
