MALABO, Equatorial Guinea, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Equatorial Guinea recently participated in the 2012 Africagua Forum held on the island of Fuerteventura, Canary Islands, on November 15-16, 2012.

Equatorial Guinea along with representatives from Senegal, Cape Verde, Morocco and Mauritania, and more than 70 businessmen from Spain and Africa came together to the Canary Island and focused on the promotion of alternative energies associated with water.

Gregorio Boho Camo, president of the Chamber of Commerce of Bioko, Equatorial Guinea and of the Central African Consular Chambers, highlighted oil as the greatest wealth of his country, "but that, however, does not solve every problem, hence the importance of renewable energy also for Equatorial Guinea." Boho Camo took the opportunity of the opening ceremony to recommend Equatorial Guinea as the host of the third edition of Africagua.

The forum discussed cross-border cooperation programs carried out in some of the five countries present at the forum, and shared international purchases that Morocco plans to launch in the coming months. Equatorial Guinea and Senegal presented their programs and national projections from 2012 to 2020.
