HE Patrice Trovoada, Prime Minister, Sao Tome and Principe



The archipelago of São Tomé and Principe was recently granted a loan by the World Bank and the IMF in support of the energy sector, the state budget and economic growth. With great potential and a promising oil sector, this significant cocoa producer faces challenges in catalysing sustainable growth and development.

At this meeting HE Patrice Trovoada will discuss his domestic and international priorities for São Tomé to place it securely on a path of economic diversification and sustained equitable growth.
