The United States and Gabon co-hosted the 2020 plenary meeting of the G7++ Friends of the Gulf of Guinea (FoGG) December 1-3, 2020. While the Covid-19 pandemic prevented us from meeting in person in Libreville, Gabon, as originally scheduled, this virtual platform allowed us a powerful way to connect and maintain momentum on the important work of the FoGG to support efforts in West and Central Africa to improve maritime security.
