The Republic of Equatorial Guinea is located in the Gulf of Guinea. It is organized into two administrative divisions. The Continental Region has the city of Bata as capital. To the north, the Continental Region borders Cameroon, the east and south with Gabon and the west with the Atlantic Ocena. The Island of Corisco as well as the two Elobeyes (Elobey Chico and Elobey Grande) are part of this Region. The Insular region is composed of two islands, Annobon and Bioko, in the latter, sits the Capital, Malabo. Equatorial Guinea is the only Spanish-speaking country in Africa besides being one of the smallest in the continent (28,050 km2 and 1,222,442 inhabitants). At the end of the 90s, American multinationals discovered important reserves of crude oil and natural gas, resources that began to contribute to the global supply of energy in recent years. In the last decade the international visibility of Equatorial Guinea has grown exponentially and the country is postulated as a pillar of stability and security in the sub-region of Central Africa. In 2011 and 2014, the country hosted the African Union Summit.
