Malabo II under construction: a new city built from scratch

Malabo II is a new city which is being built from scratch in Equatorial Guinea.

It is very hard to get any pictures about it, but I will do my best

It looks as though some architects and engineers in EG had some fun on their 3D design programs. But if this new city actually gets completed (especially the convention centre), I'm going there!

Honestly, they really didn't need to create another city, they could have just put many of these projects in Downtown Malabo and create an a nice, tall and busy city center/downtown.

Don't get me wrong, this is a very beautiful project but it seems a unnecessary and expensive to maintain. (more roads and parks)

EQGīs leader has opened its doors to people from the EU, they donīt need any visas any more, no matter how long they plan to stay. (due to jeune afrique magazine. I need to find the article again) He said that he wants to recruit massively many educated foreigners, which he certainly needs to keep all these things running in an efficient and orderly way until the locals are trained to take up the task. But like with all tiny countries, they will always need people to run things....even oil rich and ultra-wealthy Brunei has droves of Singaporean, Malayian and British long-time expats that keep thing going! I donīt see anything bad with it because Brunei people are happy, they live in an affluent country that provdes so many things free of charge!

Great renders, I hope for the best and look forward to updates.

My outlook on EG has brightened a bit now, I previously thought the oil money only went into Obiang's pockets.

All looking rather splendid.

Malabo 2 is basically located within the capital city of Malabo or was it established in a complete different location ?
