Creative youth collective explores modern Malabo
MALABO, Equatorial Guinea, Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bryan Blue, part of the American youth delegation during the Leon H. Sullivan Summit, which took place in Equatorial Guinea last August, has shared his view of the country through a video series named Passport Life.
Blue shows viewers scenes of Equatorial Guinea, where he discovered American-style conveniences and quality meals, traditional music and dancers, and Malabo's state-of-the-art airport, as well as the good weather of Equatorial Guinea. The creative team behind "Wage War," new lifestyle brand that aims to 'fight against the mediocre and the conformists' and believes in finding one's own truth by means of travel, was recently in Equatorial Guinea to film the first episode of their series, "Passport Life", which was published on YouTube on October 18.
Equatorial Guinea visitors have been able to see the country with their own eyes and reach their own conclusions. The country is developing at a fast pace and it has provided the African diaspora with an opportunity to strengthen partnership with the international community.
Equatorial Guinea has assumed an increasingly active role in international affairs in the past year. It hosted the Africa Cup of Nations soccer tournament, the tournament's 16-nation draw in the nation's modern conference center, Sipopo. Sipopo has also hosted events associated with the African-South American Summit. It was the host of the African-South America Forum, at which ministers of foreign affairs from 65 countries came together, and it will host the summit at a later date this year. In June and July, Equatorial Guinea hosted the African Union Summit, also in Sipopo.
