Despite initial efforts to reassure mining companies after taking power in September 2021, junta leader Colonel Mamadi Doumbouya has increasingly clashed with them. In particular this revolves around junta efforts to pressure bauxite and iron ore miners to accelerate infrastructure construction and investments.
- Concerns over Guinea's precarious political situation could stifle foreign investment.
- Doumbouya may rescind his promise not to contest the next elections.
- Violent clashes between anti-government protesters and security forces are likely in 2023.
