An initiative of the Guinea Government,'Invest in Guinea' is hosting the briefing to introduce the new mining code to international audiences and bring investors and journalists together to learn more about the benefits of the new code amendments and their role in encouraging long term sustainability within the investment landscape of Guinea through full accountability and transparency of responsible investment practices.

About President Alpha Condé
Alpha Condé is the first democratically elected President of the Republic of Guinea. The first free and democratic presidential elections of 2010 marked an important date in Guinea’s history, allowing the West African country to initiate a democratic transition and begin to stabilise after more than 50 years of authoritarian rule and a military junta.

An historic opposition figure, defender of human rights and freedom, President Alpha Condé was imprisoned and exiled under the authoritarian regimes that have controlled Guinea since its independence from France in 1958. A former President of the Federation of African students in France (FEANF), a Doctor of Law and Professor at the Faculty of Law and Economic Sciences at the Sorbonne (Paris), President Alpha Condé has dedicated his life to establish a pluralistic democracy in Guinea, and to the defence of rights and freedom. Since his election in 2010, Guinea has undertaken a profound transformation. In just two and a half years, President Alpha Condé has successfully reformed the army, strengthened the rule of law, committed a priority fight against corruption and impunity, and restored the freedom of expression, opinion and demonstration.

President Alpha Condé has also implemented a series of reforms to modernise Guinea, boost the economy and improve the living conditions of its citizens. In just two and a half years, Guinea has made significant progress leading to the stabilisation of its economy and to growth (4.8% in 2012; Guinea ranked in Tier 1 of Global growth by JP Morgan). Since 2010, the Government has reduced the deficit from 13% to 2%, reduced external debt, stabilised the currency, reduced inflation from 23% to 13% and significantly increased customs revenues. Priority reforms to strengthen the mining sector and improve the investment climate have also been initiated. The current revitalisation of the mining sector, which was marked by years of stagnation, mismanagement and corruption, is highly strategic for Guinea. The Government’s goal is to transform the mining potential into better living conditions for the people of Guinea.

About Minister Mohamed Lamine Fofana
Mohamed Lamine Fofana was formerly advisor to the Prime Minister of Guinea in charge of the mining sector from 2004 to 2010, before being named Minister of Mines of the Republic of Guinea by President Alpha Condé in January 2011. Prior to this Mr. Fofana was Deputy Director of the Department of Natural Resources and Agriculture for USAID/Guinea (United States Agency for International Development). Other work with USAID/Guinea included Deputy Director of Management Department of Natural Resources and Agriculture and Director of the microfinance programme ‘Integrated Programme for Development of Enterprise’ (PRIDE) as well as Director of the Guarantee Fund for Agricultural Marketing (1996-1998). Mr Fofana was also Director of Project Support for Economic Reform in the Republic of Guinea with USAID/Guinea (1992-1994), and from 1990-1992 was Deputy Commercial Director of SOGEL (Guinean Electricity Company).

About Minister Kerfalla Yansané
Dr Kerfalla Yansané was appointed Minister of Economy and Finance of the Republic of Guinea in February 2010. He was recently promoted to Senior-Minister after having achieved major macroeconomic reforms in Guinea. Before his appointment as Minister of Economy and Finance, he served as the Governor of the Central Bank of Guinea during the period of the structural adjustment program 1985-1996. Thereafter, he worked as a Development Consultant with a number of international institutions, including amongst others the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the UNDP, the NEPAD Secretariat, the African Development Bank, UN Economic Commission for Africa, and the African Development Bank. Over the past 15 years, Dr Yansané has been involved in a number of regional and international boards and technical committees, including amongst others: Executive Board, African Capacity Building Foundation, Harare, Zimbabwe (2002-2009); Board of Directors, the International Lawyers and Economists Against Poverty (ILEAP), Toronto, Canada, for the assistance to African and Caribbean countries in the international trade negotiations (2006-2009); Member, United Nations Committee for Development Policy (New York, USA), responsible for reviewing the criteria and the list of the Least Developed Countries (2004-2006); Board of Directors, the International Lawyers and Economists Against Poverty (ILEAP), Toronto, Canada, for the assistance to African and Caribbean countries in the international trade negotiations (2006-2009); Member, the Policy Advisory Group of the Consultative Group to Assist the Poor(CIGAP), through the extension of Micro Finance services (World Bank, Washington DC, USA).
