Equatorial Guinea is a LDC situated in the Central African Coast, near Cameroon and Gabon. Its economy is largely based on petroleum and timber exports to mainly Japan, France and China. The country is characterized by its long standing political and economic stability which attracts growing interest from foreign businesses, especially in the domain of oil deposit extraction.
As a member of the Central African Economic and Monetary Community (CAEMC), Equatorial Guinea has benefited from sporadic ITC interventions in the framework of its regional projects such as PACT2. ITC aims to reinforce its trade related assistance in the country and support the country in the development of a sustainable economic growth.
