In their summit on Thursday, the leaders were expected to “exchange views on issues of mutual concern, such as cooperation on the energy sector including petroleum and gas as well as a partnership on infrastructure construction,” the Blue House said in a statement.
They also were planning to discuss ways to share Korea’s experience in connection with that country’s development project called Agenda 2020.
During his four-day stay here, Obiang is to inspect industrial facilities associated with energy and water resources, according to the Blue House.
