To be included in the list, companies need to be privately held and show an excellent rate of growth and potential to power African development.
“It is an honour to put Equatorial Guinea on the map as a country that has hard working entrepreneurs contributing to the development of not only the country, but also the continent,” Alduco Engineering Services Group Managing Director, Alfredo Jones, said upon hearing the news.
He dedicated the recognition to the many entrepreneurs in Equatorial Guinea creating employment, developing local human resources and contributing to the development of the country’s economy.
2019 is ramping up to be a bumper year for Equatorial Guinea, as the country will play host to the 2019 Year of Energy initiative, positioning itself as the energy capital of the African continent throughout the year.
The goal of the initiative is to showcase the opportunities in Equatorial Guinea’s and the continent’s energy industry, promote local companies and the achievements of Equatorial Guinea, as well as support the agenda of oil and gas producing countries on the African continent.
