It will be recalled that His Excellency, Gabriel Mbaga Obiang Lima, had hosted Dreams Hub to a meeting at the Ministry weeks ago in which the digital economy was the centre of discussion as well as possible collaborations.

Focused on recycling and ecotourism, the Founder, Anabel Siale Barila, also met with the Minister and presented one of their products from recyclable materials, La Bota de Africa, which is a recreation of the map of the Bioko Island, and the name was formed due to its shape like that of a boot.
As the ‘Dreams tour’ wrapped up, H.E. Gabriel Mbaga Obiang Lima penned some words of further commendations and encouragement in the ‘Dreams register’ saying, don’t stop!
