 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 its capital. To the north, the Continental Region borders Cameroon, Gabon to the east and south, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. The Island of Corisco as well as the two Elobeyes (Elobey Chico and Elobey Grande) are part of this Region. The Island region is composed of two islands, Annobon and Bioko, in the latter, the Capital, Malabo, sits. Equatorial Guinea is the only Spanish-speaking country in Africa in addition to being one of the smallest on the continent (28,050 km2 and 1,222,442 inhabitants). In the late 1990s, American multinationals discovered significant reserves of crude oil and natural gas, resources that began to contribute to the global energy supply in recent years. In the last decade, Equatorial Guinea's international visibility has grown exponentially, and the country has been postulated as a pillar of stability and security in the Central African sub-region. In 2011 and 2014 the country hosted the African Union Summit.
