Guinea-Bissau officially called the Republic of Guinea-Bissau is an ethnically diverse country with an estimate of 1.5 million people. The main economic activity in the country is agriculture, which is largely subsistence-based. The capital of Guinea-Bissau is Bissau and the official language is Portuguese.
With the growing demand for African Mango, Guinea Bissau joined other West African Countries to form a group called West African Regional Mango Alliance/ l’Alliance Régionale de la Mangue de l’Afrique de l’Ouest (WARMA/ARMAO). This was done to develop the mango value chain within the member countries. It also aims to better inform the stakeholders in the value chain on how to get the most out of their investment in mango production. As almost all mango production is in the hands of local producers, the focus on mango will further improve the value chain in the country and create employment and income for local farmers and other actors.
