There has been no substantial impact on the region by events in Guinea so far. However, we have concerns that if the situation substantially deteriorated again, there could be an impact on Guinea's neighbouring countries. We therefore welcome the efforts of the Economic Community of West African States and regional heads of state in helping to mediate between the Guinean Government and the trade unions and opposition parties.
