The government of the Republic of Guinea has publicly committed to implement the FiTI.
A public commitment demonstrates a sincere intention of the country’s government to increase transparency in fisheries management through the FiTI. However, the commitment should not be misinterpreted as official acceptance into the initiative. Only when such a commitment is followed by concrete implementation activities (such as the establishment of a FiTI National Multi-Stakeholder Group or the agreement on the country’s first FiTI workplan) and the subsequent approval of the country’s Candidate Application by the FiTI International Board will Guinea be formally recognised as an FiTI implementing country.
With a coastline of 1,615 km, the fisheries and aquaculture sector is one of the pillars of the Guinean economy in terms of budget revenues, food security and jobs. For example, according to the UN-FAO, fishing activities generated more than 15,7 million dollars in exports (in 2019).
Since 2017, the FiTI has been collaborating with stakeholders in Guinea (government, business, civil society) to raise awareness about the importance of transparency for the country’s marine fisheries sector.
