The Sullivan Foundation recognizes that the image of Equatorial Guinea is distorted
The Minister of Information, Press and Radio, Agustin Nze Nfumu, received the Communications Director of the Sullivan Foundation, Aly Z. Ramji, who spoke about the image of Equatorial Guinea held by some places outside the country, which is far from reality.
The meeting, held in the temporary office of the Minister in Malabo II, was also attended by some of the Directors of the Ministry and other officials.
- "Equatorial Guinea has its difficulties, but in this country there is no misery and poverty, on the contrary, it is an open country, and it is important that its true image is projected at the level of the international community to counter the distorted image projected by the international press". These were the words of the Communications Director of the Sullivan Foundation, Aly Z. Ramji, during his meeting with the Minister of Information, Press and Radio, Agustin Nze Nfumu.
During the meeting, Aly Z. Ramji said that the fact that the Sullivan Foundation is organizing its Ninth Summit in our country is precisely to project the true image of Equatorial Guinea in the international community: "For this reason, part of the press is criticizing both the Foundation, and Equatorial Guinea. But the real image of this country must be revealed to the international community, because this is a State where there is no misery and poverty, and in which any activity can be exercised freely."
Meanwhile, Agustin Nze Nfumu thanked the Sullivan Foundation for its support and in regard to the negative image projected by some media; he said that "this is nothing new for the Government. Before the discovery of oil, no one was interested in our country, but after its appearance, all of this negative information has appeared."
In his speech, he also acknowledged the Foundation for its collaboration and effort in organizing this summit, and guaranteed the Ministry's willingness to work together to ensure its complete success.
