China–Equatorial Guinea relations refer to the foreign relations between China and Equatorial Guinea. China and Equatorial Guinea established diplomatic relations on October 15, 1970.[1]

In the 1970s, China and Equatorial Guinea signed agreements on economic and technological cooperation and trade. China provided Equatorial Guinea in the construction of the telecommunications buildings and broadcasting station in Malabo and Bata, a paving of the Nkue - Mongomo road, that is still in good condition, the Bicomo Hydropower Station in Bata that failed due to technical issues, and renovations to the Niefang Highway and Niefang - Nkue Highway.[2]

Medical aid and scholarship programmes were also started, in exchange for timber.

Chinese development finance to Equatorial Guinea[edit]

From 2000 to 2011, there are approximately 19 Chinese official development finance projects identified in Equatorial Guinea through various media reports.[3] These projects range from a US$75 million debt relief in 2006,[4] to the construction of the Djibloho (Jibu Lao) Hydropower Station Transmission line project.[5]
