The countries on the African continent are facing very difficult challenges these days, especially due to the coronavirus pandemic. We really need to help them to overcome their challenges.
Guinea is a West African country with abundant natural resources. Under the leadership of President Alpha Conde the government is working on many investment projects and is waiting to meet with new investors.
