Gold Key Service
Thank you for your interest in potential commercial and business opportunities in Guinea.
The best way to get a sense of what Guinea might be able to offer is arrange a visit to explore the country. First-hand experiences with the Guinean political-economic and cultural landscape will prove invaluable if you do decide to proceed with a business venture. Even if you have established a contact on the ground, it is important that you schedule a visit early in order to better understand the opportunities and the risks. If you are able to visit Conakry, I would be happy to meet with you at the Embassy to discuss your interests.
In the meantime, the U.S. Embassy in Conakry, through Export Promotion Services of the U.S. Commercial Service, offers trade promotion services to American businesses that seek to operate in Guinea. These services include:
- the Gold Key Appointment Service https://guinea2.cms.getusinfo.com/commercial_section.html,
- the International Partner Search program, and
- Assistance with Trade Shows/Missions. Some of these services incur a fee. If you are interested in exploring any of these programs, please contact us and we can provide you with more detailed information and an estimated cost. For more general information, I encourage you to consult with our 2010 Country Commercial Guide, which is available online at http://www.buyusainfo.net/docs/x_2806173.pdf (PDF 445 KB)
If you would like additional information on any of our services, please contact our Economic/Commercial Officer, Adam Halverson, at Halversonac@state.gov.
Thank you again for your inquiry. I wish you the best of luck in your business endeavors. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of further service.
Mr Adam Halverson
Counselor for Economic and Commercial Affairs
