Bauxite and alumina are currently the only major exports of Guinea. Other industries include processing plants for beer, juices, soft drinks, and tobacco. Agriculture employs 80% of the nation’s labour force. Guinea’s farming potential is massive, and the government plans to make the country an agricultural powerhouse by 2025.
