With a slowed growth rate of 5.6% in 2024, Guinea has shown remarkable resilience in a complex context, marked by recent events such as the fire at Conakry’s main oil depot.

The country has abundant natural resources, holding the world’s largest bauxite reserves (25% of the stock) and ranking as the world’s second largest producer. Guinea also has significant hydrological and agricultural potential.

However, despite these assets, Guinea’s economy remains relatively undiversified and structurally vulnerable to external shocks, particularly in the commodities sector, which accounts for 35% of GDP and 85% of the country’s exports.

To achieve the “Vision 2040 of an emerging and prosperous Guinea”, the government is committed to working with the private sector, launching strategic projects under the “Interim Transition Reference Programme 2022-2025 (PRI)” with an estimated value of 12,273 million dollars. Nearly 30% of the financing remains to be secured, with a contribution expected from international donors, with the stated aim of accelerating the structural transformation of the economy.

Against this backdrop, just a few weeks before GUIF3, AFRICA CEO FORUM is organising the “Invest in Guinea” digital event, aimed at unveiling investment opportunities in the country’s mining, infrastructure, agro-industry and energy sectors.

Key points

  • Business climate, dynamic sectors, reform agenda: a panel of leading economic players will discuss the Guinean ecosystem;
  • Three public-private workshops to discuss investment opportunities on a sector-by-sector basis.
