Equatorial Guinea offering more opportunities than just oil | Africa Business Trend | Scoop.it
How We Made It In Africa – Insight into business in Africa ... The oil and gas industry has transformed the economy of Equatorial Guinea, a small Central African country with a population of less than 1m people.
s mba's insight:

One of Equatorial Guinea’s most high-profile infrastructure projects is deep in the rainforest where a new capital city, named Oyala, is being built. Like Brazil’s capital Brasília or Nigeria’s seat of government Abuja, Oyala is a planned city being built entirely from scratch.

The project is creating significant opportunities for construction companies and building material suppliers.

Oyala will replace the current capital of Malabo, which is situated on the island of Bioko off the coast from the mainland.
