EQG´s leader has opened its doors to people from the EU, they don´t 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 don´t see anything bad with it because Brunei people are happy, they live in an affluent country that provdes so many things free of charge!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)
