Chinese to upgrade Guinea port

China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC) has signed a massive $770m deal with Guinea’s government on Monday to upgrade the port in the capital, Conakry.

CHEC will build three docks, roads and other infrastructure in the eastern zone of the port.

“With the completion of this project extending the Autonomous Port of Conakry, it will become the largest in the sub-region,” CHEC director in Guinea, Ding Jialong, said.

China is increasingly taking iron ore and bauxite from Guinea.
