Guinea is endowed with abundant mineral resources, an agriculture-friendly environment with more than 6.2 million hectares of arable land and a hydroelectric potential of around 6,00 megawatts. Guinea also has the world’s largest reserves of bauxite (40 billion tons), the world’s richest iron ore (over 60% content), a reserve estimated at 20 billion tons that can be mined for 100 years. The sub-soil is rich in other minerals such as diamonds and base metals.

The Government of Guinea has been carrying on reforms since 2015 to achieve the following key objectives:

  1. Develop Africa’s largest mining sector
  2. Build small and large hydroelectric dams to generate sufficient energy
  3. Develop infrastructure
  4. Build modern cities
  5. Release the country’s agro-business potential to achieve food self-sufficiency and become a breadbasket for the West African region

Priority sectors are:

  • Energy and hydraulics
  • Agriculture
  • Infrastructure
  • Mining
  • Post, telecommunications, IT and digital economy
  • Industry
  • Trade
  • Tourism

The Government of the Republic of Guinea is keen to attract strategic partners and business private sector investments to work with them to achieve the above objectives in the priority sectors outlined above. A brochure from APIP Guinea is enclosed for your reference.

MASSA is collaborating with APIP-Guinea and Mr Ismael Nabe, Advisor to the Prime Minister of Guinea in charge of Public-Private Partnership, Investments and Partnerships with Asia, to organise the above-mentioned webinar and cordially invite you and your members to join the webinar and find out more about the many business opportunities available in the Republic of Guinea.
