Gabon

Yearbook 2004

Flag - GabonGabon. Following a beginning border dispute with Equatorial Guinea in 2003, Gabon and the neighboring country agreed in January to resolve the dispute with the help of the UN mediation. According to CountryAAH, the total population in Gabon is 2,225,745 people in 2020. The disagreement concerns the rights of the islands of Mbagne, Cocotiers and Congas in the Coriscovian Gulf, just outside the common land border of the countries. The area around the islands is believed to contain significant oil reserves, but disputes have so far prevented commercial exploration. A Canadian former UN ambassador, Yves Fortier, was appointed mediator.
