Project General Description

1.1 Since independence, Guinea and Mali have demonstrated a common desire to establish a permanent link between both countries with a view to developing and enhancing their economic integration. In that regard, comparative studies were carried out on the two possible links via Bougouni or Kouremale. Contacted to finance the feasibility and detailed studies thereof, the ADF in December 1992 extended to both Governments a grant of UA 2.20 million. The studies were completed, the final reports prepared in 1997 and updated end 1998.

Project Objectives

The sectoral objective of the project is to open up Guinea’s North-East and Mali’s South-West regions to improve sub-regional integration and diversify Mali’s interchange with the outside world. Specifically, the project aims at guaranteeing the sustainability of road links between Guinea’s and Mali’s economic and administrative centres, thus reducing transport cost and promoting economic activities in the project impact area.


The beneficiaries targeted by the project are all the economic agents of the two countries and in particular the rural populations in the project's zone of influence, economic operators, Malian importers, the port of Conakry, farmers and towns connected by road.
