Spain eyeing Guinea – New embassy

Posted by African Press International on September 7, 2007

Conakry (Guinea) The Spanish minister of employment and social affairs, Caldera Sanchez Capitan, Tuesday announced his countrys plan to open an embassy soon in Conakry and to support vocational training of young Guineans.

M. Capitan made this announcement at the end of an official visit to Conakry and said the embassy will be opened very soon as the ambassador has already been appointed.

According to him, there still remain some steps to go through for the establishment of the embassy, which is part of moves towards strengthening cooperation between the two countries.

During the visit of the Spanish minister, the delegations of both countries discussed immigration issues, especially since Guinea has become one of the embarking points for the illegal migrants who have been flooding into the Spanish coasts.

Spain also pledged to support vocational training centres in a bid to help young Guineans access better training to better serve their country or easily land a job in Spain in case they wish to work in that country. The initiative, which is already underway in other countries of the region like Senegal was hailed by the Guinean authorities.

Last year, Spain had provided Guinea with a financial assistance of 5 million Euros as part of the fight against illegal migration.
