About Guinea-Bissau

Guinea-Bissau, located in West Africa, neighbors Guinea and Senegal. Despite being one of the smallest countries in Africa, Guinea-Bissau is home to a very diverse and rich geography, consisting of wetlands, tropical forests, and savannahs with extensive wildlife. Guinea-Bissau is heavily reliant on agriculture, both subsistence and on a larger scale. The industry accounts for over half the country’s GDP. It makes up the primary income of over ¾ of the population.

Cashew is the most significant crop in the country. It is used for local consumption and commercial export. The second most important sector is manufacturing. Fishing and forestry are now becoming more significant and hold high potential.
