Guinea Economic Outlook

  • The country made a significant start on reforms in 2011, opening the way toreaching the completion point of the Highly Indebted Poor Countries (HIPC) initiative and establishing the post-HIPC agenda at the centre of political debate. The process needs to be deepened and speeded up in a context of budgetary constraints and weak capacity.

AfDB and Guinea

Cooperation between the African Development Bank (AfDB) and Guinea dates back to 1974. As of October 2011, the Bank Group had financed 77 operations (58 projects, nine studies, seven institutional support operations and three non-project loans) valued at approximately US $818 million. Bank-funded projects are primarily in the areas of infrastructure/energy, agriculture, the social sector and multi-sector.
