About Guinea

Guinea-Conakry, officially known as the Republic of Guinea, is located in western Africa and borders the Atlantic Ocean. It is referred to as Guinea-Conakry to distinguish it from neighboring Guinea-Bissau and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea. The 10.9 million people who live here belong to 48 ethnic groups . The largest and most prominent groups are the Fula (40%), Mandingo (30%), and Susu (20%). A predominantly Islamic country, Muslims represent about 85% of the population.

The country is divided into four main geographic regions: the Basse-Coté lowlands, populated mainly by the Susu ethnic group; the cooler, mountainous Fouta Djallon that run roughly north-south through the middle of the country, populated by Fulas, the Sahelian Haute-Guinea to the northeast, populated by Malinké, and the forested jungle regions in the southeast, with several ethnic groups.

Guinea received its independence from France in 1958, and French remains the primary language used in schools, government, and the media. Agriculture and mineral production drive the economy. It is the world´s second largest producer of the rock bauxite, from which aluminum is made. There are also rich deposits of gold and diamonds.

Operation World reports that relative freedom exists for Christians to witness and conduct missionary activities. Intolerance by Muslims has increased in some areas, however.
