Fuerteventura (Canary Islands) became on Thursday and Friday the capital of new technologies applied to water. A business and commercial platform, organized by the island's Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with Casa Africa, the insular Government and the Instituto Tecnologico de Canarias (ITC), it was attended by five African countries: Equatorial Guinea, Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal and Cape Verde and over 70 businessmen from Spain and Africa.

Among those attending the forum were Gregorio Boho Camo, President of the Chamber of Commerce of Bioko and of the Central African Consular Chambers, the Consul General of Morocco in the Canaries, Ahmed Moussa, the former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Senegal, Alioune Badara Cissè; the Minister of Employment, Industry and Commerce, of the regional Government of the Canary Islands and President of ITC, Margarita Ramos; the President of the Inter-island council of Fuerteventura, Mario Cabrera Gonzalez, and other personalities from the island. Also in attendance was the Secretary-General of Casa Africa, Luis Padilla Macabeo.

During the two days of Africagua 2012, they discussed cross-border cooperation programs carried out in some of the five countries present at the forum, and announced international tenders that Morocco plans to launch in the coming months. For their part, Senegal and Equatorial Guinea presented the programs in which they work and national forecasts until 2020.

-"The Canary Islands need Africa, and Africa needs the Canary Islands," said the regional president of the Islands, Paulino Rivero on Thursday, at the opening of the forum. "We need each other and we must work together. The Canary Islands are a geographically African territory with European development and welfare, who builds bridges towards Africa. We are the only region that desalinates 600,000 liters of water a day," said Rivero.

For his part, Gregorio Boho Camo recalled that oil is 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 offer his country as the host of the third edition of Africagua.
