ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This book was submitted to several people for obser-vations, suggestions and advice. They all gracefully ac-cepted to read it. I would like to express my deepest gratitude for their encouraging advice on all or part of the manuscript. Ibrahima Soumah and Mamadou Doumbouya, for-mer Minister of Mines and Geology and former Secre-tary General of the same Ministry, and El Hadj Mamadi Touré from the Head Office of the Compagnie des Bauxites de Guinée (CBG) rank amongst the greatest experts of the Guinean mining sector. They read the chapter on mining with great care, and this reassured me enormously. I am grateful to Ousmane Tanou Diallo, Energy Con-sultant at the African Development Bank, who put at my disposal a wealth of information on energy in Guinea which was largely authored by him. I also wish to thank Ousmane Conté, from the Re-search and Statistics Office of the Institut Monétaire de l’Afrique de l’Ouest (IMAO), in Accra, who edited the chapter on the Ghana Example. I appreciate the availability of Mody Oury Barry, an electrical Engineer, who took the time to contribute to the chapter on hydroelectricity. I also thank Saloun Cis-sé, an acknowledged expert on the Guinean natural en-vironment who edited the chapter on agriculture, as well

as Sékouna Diakité, former official of the African De-velopment Bank, who made meaningful general com-ments. I wish to express my gratitude to Moussa Sidibé, a talented demographer of Guinea, who made relevant comments on the last chapter of the manuscript. I also thank Abdoulaye Touré, former national Director of the Plan. This expert in economical modelling and macroe-conomic framing willingly edited the manuscript. This book owes much to the quality of the editing, suggestions and comments by Mourad Labidi, former UN expert and Economy Consultant at the African De-velopment Bank. Finally, I wish to thank Seydi Ababacar Dieng, Uni-versity Professor in Economics, Director of the econom-ic and monetary research laboratory (Larem) of the Cheick-Anta-Diop University of Dakar (UCAD) and visiting professor at various universities, such as Sofo-nia University in Conakry.
