CONNEX Support Measure featured on TV in Guinea

In October 2017, the CONNEX Support Unit in cooperation with the GIZ Mineral Resource Governance sectoral programme in the fragile states of Western Africa Regional Project implemented CONNEX support for strengthening the government negotiation team of the Republic of Guinea. The support focused on financial modelling for mining contracts. During support delivery, the national TV channel ESPACE-TV interviewed representatives of the Government of Guinea as well as the CONNEX Support Unit. A Guinean official explained that the measure shall help to ensure future contracts negotiated with mining companies will be a “win-win for both parties”. On a more general level, the aim of the negotiation support was also to increase government revenues for enhancing the socio-economic development of Guinea.
