Republic of Guinea
Diplomatic relations were established in 1973. The Embassy of Brazil in Conakry was inaugurated in 2006 and the Embassy of Guinea in Brasília was opened in 2005. The opening of resident Embassies, the intensification of contact of high level authorities and the signature of several agreements – such as the technical cooperation one – have contributed to deepen bilateral relations.
The economic aspect of the relationship has also been intensified, including through the work of Brazilian companies in Guinea, which have invested in the sectors of mineral search and production. From 2004 to 2012, trade volume between the two countries rose from US$ 14 million to US$ 67 million.
