Canada-Guinea Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA) Negotiations

Background

In December 2013, Canada and Guinea announced the conclusion of negotiations towards a Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement (FIPA). The Canadian Ambassador, M. Philippe Beaulne and the Guinean Minister of Commerce, Mr. Marc Yombouno, signed the Agreement on May 27, 2015.

A bilateral FIPA will provide greater predictability and certainty for Canadian investors considering investment opportunities in Guinea. Canada’s objective in entering these negotiations is to secure a comprehensive, high-quality agreement which will protect investors through the establishment of a framework of legally binding rights and obligations.
