(AMETRADE) - The Republic of Guinea is the ideal mining investment location. Since 2011, the country has made enormous progress by building the foundation for a “rock solid” development of its mining sector. The new mining code, adopted in 2011 and revised in 2013, optimizes benefits for the country and its people, as well as reinforces attractiveness for investors.
Willing to promote Guinea as an attractive and ideal mining investment destination, the Ministry of Mines & Geology, Republic of Guinea organises the 6th edition of Symposium Mines Guinea, in partnership with AME Trade Ltd.
