Guinea has a population of 10.5 million, with the capital Conakry being the most populated town. Agriculture is responsible for the employment of around 80% of the working population and the economy has strong potential for growth, through the agricultural and fishing sectors. In addition, Guinea boasts vast reserves of natural resources including diamonds and gold, which are usually untapped. Furthermore Guinea is the world’s second largest producer of bauxite. Today youth unemployment is the country’s biggest problem which still needs to be addressed. The aftermaths of the 2014 Ebola virus outbreak also draws a gloomy future.
