After decades of isolation, Guinea is now beginning to open up to the outside world and is relying on its mineral reserves (bauxite, copper, iron ore, diamonds and uranium) to pull it out of its position of one of the world’s poorest countries.


Guinea is considered to have the most reliable business for foreign investors, traders and companies in West Africa. (SEE PAGE-2) The working mentality of the Guineas differs very much from the surrounding countries and the people are known for their friendlyness, beauty and hospitality. The quality of life and standard of living has improved for most of the Guineans; many in exile returned, free enterprise is encouraged and people can talk openly without fear of repression. Guinea is one of the wettest countries in West Africa. A mild sweet small red bush fruit, Kingkriesji called by the locals, is considered to have positive medicinal effect on stomach ach. About 3/4th of Guinea's population consists of Malinke, Fula and Susu/Soussou. There are several other ethnic groups. The official language is French whereas many African languages like Malinke, Fula, Soussou etc. are also spoken. The Malinke (or Mandingo) and Fula are famous for their music.

Conakry:

Conakry is the capital of Guinea - a country sometimes called Guinea-Conakry to distinguish it from the neighboring Guinea-Bissau. It is also the educational center of the country, and the University of Conakry is located here, among other schools. Other important institutions and structures include the museum, library, and national archives, Palais du Peuple (National Assembly building), the sports stadium - Stade du 28-Septembre.

BRUSSELS/BELGIUM: 30 April 2009: BRUSSELS AIRLINES flies Africa
Brussels Airlines
In 2002 SN Brussels Airlines was created to continue in the steps of the two companies Sabena and DAT, who between them had an unequalled safety record. BRUSSELS AIRLINES was created following the merger of SN Brussels Airlines (SNBA) and Virgin Express. On 12 April 2005, SN Airholding, the company behind SNBA, signed an agreement with Richard Branson, giving it control over Virgin Express. On 7 November 2006, the new name, Brussels Airlines, was announced at a press conference at Brussels Airport. Brussels Airlines began operations on 25 March 2007. On September 15, 2008 it was announced that Lufthansa will acquire a 45% stake in Brussels Airlines with an option to acquire the remaining 55% from 2011. As a part of this deal Brussels Airlines will join Star Alliance. On March 13, Brussels Airlines announced that the airline will codeshare all their flights to Germany with Lufthansa. The codeshare agreement will start from March 29. This new step is part of the integration of Brussels Airlines into the Star Alliance network. Brussels Airlines becomes a Star Alliance member in 2009.

From 26 April 2002 SN Brussels Airlines opened frequent Africa connections and presently BRUSSELS AIRLINES serves safe and reliable flights to:

ANGOLA (Luanda) - BURUNDI (Bujumbura) - CAMEROON (Douala & Yaoundé) - CôTE D'IVOIR (Abidjan) - DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF THE CONGO (Kinshasa) - THE GAMBIA (Banjul (Banjul) - GUINEA (Conakry) - KENYA (Nairobi) - LIBERIA (Monrovia) - RWANDA (Kigali) - SENEGAL (Dakar) - SIERRA LEONE (Freetown) - UGANDA (Entebbe)
