Summary:

This Background Paper on Guinea highlights that Guinea’s relatively strong macroeconomic performance during 1987–94 allowed for an annual increase in real per capita GDP of 1 percent. On the basis of national account estimates, the growth of value added in the primary sector averaged about 3.7 percent annually during 1986–92 before accelerating to some 5 percent during 1993–94. The buoyancy in the primary sector reflected mainly a strong response of agriculture to economic liberalization and large investments in the agricultural sector.
