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.

Why conduct market research

Guinea-Bissau remains one of the poorest and fragile countries in Africa. Its economy is fragile, and the consumer base generally lacks disposable income. However, there are many reasons for you to set up shop or expand your operations in Guinea-Bissau.

The main reason being the growth fuelled by increasing cashew production. It has allowed many involved in the industry to grow incomes.
