Equatorial Guinea is in an enviable position in comparison to much of the rest of Africa. The discovery of ample petroleum reserves has altered the economic and political status of the country. Its gross domestic product (GDP) per capita ranks 64th in the world according to the CIA World Fact Book and its GDP growth rate during this decade has been the highest in the world at over 60%.
