Equatorial Guinea Strengthens Ecotourism Offerings

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea, through its Director General of Tourist Planning and the Ministry of Culture, Tourism, and Artisanal Promotion, strengthened its ecotourism offerings at a recent meeting with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) commission.

Equatorial Guinea is set to further expand tourism opportunities with the development of first-class tourist experiences for national and international visitors. The program will first undertake pilot tests in two protected areas to determine large-scale viability.

Equatorial Guinea and representatives of the UNDP highlighted the importance of preservation of the natural environments to promote responsible tourism.

Equatorial Guinea has a robust tourism sector and has hosted international conferences, delegations, and sporting events at its world-class facilities. The expansion of tourism opportunities in Equatorial Guinea will further expand the large sector.

Equatorial Guinea was elected to the Executive Board of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) in 2017.
