Symposium des Mines de Guinée

CTA Group participated for the 2nd time in the “Symposium des Mines de Guinée”. It was a successful experience with more than 700 delegates and 3000 visitors from over 30 countries.This exhibition was a new opportunity to meet our clients and to be closer to their operations. We were honoured to present our new strategy articulated around our 3 Pillars: Distribution, Services & Trading. We had the pleasure to meet Alpha Condé, the Guinean president who visited our stand. The quality of lectures has shown the interest of investors and participants. Guinea has become a real actor in the Mining Industry in West Africa. Beside bauxite, many groups are exploring the country for Diamond, Gold, Iron & even petrol.

Furthermore, Guinea is also defining his local content and recently launched the BSTP. BSTP is a platform where international companies can find the right local partner. Due to this platform, the suppliers will have access to big tenders and socio-economic reports. The goals are multiple: encouraging and increasing local procurement, proposing qualified and recognising suppliers to new investors, developing availability of the goods and services locally, etc…

Guinea has definitely become a Key Country for CTA Group and we will soon have a branch in the country. As part of the CTA Group Strategy, we will be present locally and will offer products & services from our local entity. That is definitely the direction we take!
