Guinean Franc


Guinea, officially Republic of Guinea is a country in West Africa formerly known as French Guinea.  Its territory has a crescent shape, with its western border on the Atlantic Ocean, curving inland to the east and south. The Atlantic coast borders Guinea-Bissau to the north and Sierra Leone to the south. The inland part neighbors Senegal to the north, Mali to the north and north-east, Côte d'Ivoire to the south-east, and Liberia to the south. The Niger River runs through the nation as well, providing both water and irregular transportation.

Languages and Dialects

French is the official language of Guinea, while there are several other important languages such as, Pular (Fulfulde or Fulani), Maninka, Susu, Insula, Kissi, Kpelle, and Loma.  This variety of languages adds to the cultural wealth of the country as well.

Business Development

Guinea is extremely rich in natural resources , especially of the resource, bauxite, having nearly 25 billion metric tons and perhaps up to one-half of the world's reserves. In addition, Guinea's mineral wealth includes more than 4-billion tons of high-grade iron ore, significant diamond and gold deposits, and undetermined quantities of uranium. Guinea has considerable potential for growth in the agricultural and fishing sectors. Soil, water, and climatic conditions provide opportunities for large-scale irrigated farming and agro industry.  In the future, Guinea looks to further develop their fishing and agricultural industries as well.

Future Development

In the future, Guinea looks to expand their economy and infrastructure to become more of a global leader in the various industries.  The nation will continue to have a strong agricultural industry, particularly farming and fishing and they would also like to expand into other industries such as tourism.
