Description

The National Radio of Equatorial Guinea reported in September 2005 that the Chinese construction company Gwang Ding was building a new two-story building, fitted out with audiovisual equipment with support from the Chinese Government. A group of Chinese engineers are responsible for maintaining the infrastructure of Radio Bata, after the two governments signed a cooperation agreement on the maintenance of the new radio transmission equipment. Two 50-kW shortwave transmitters are being installed at the radio station, along with two antennas, one domestic and the other external. China Dalian International Company was also involved in project implementation.
