- Economic growth in 2014, estimated at 0.6% versus an initial 4.5% target, was weaker than projected because of the Ebola epidemic.
- Political tensions have endured despite the new parliament set up in January 2014, marking the end of the transition period.
- Ebola increased the social cost of the country’s macroeconomic stabilisation, harmed the living conditions of the most vulnerable people and further reduced the country’s likelihood of achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
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.
