Background

In collaboration with Leosen International, Core Advisory advised the Government of the Republic of Guinea on the setting up of the country’s first special economic zone (SEZ). In consultation with various stakeholders from the government, the private sector, and international organisations, we conceptualised, designed, and customised a suitable SEZ framework for Guinea.

Site Area

20 sqKM

Location

Boké, Guinea

Investments

US$ 2 Billion

The Guinea SEZ is a 20 square kilometres township along the Kamsar-Boké-Conakry Economic Corridor. Located in Boké, Western Guinea — a region that has attracted over US$1 billion investments in the mining, infrastructure, logistics and port sectors — the SEZ aims to accelerate the industrialisation of the Guinean economy, and diversify the Boke region into non-mining activities.
