Building forward better for businesses in Guinea-Bissau

November 3, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic and the measures taken to control its spread have created a painful socio-economic crisis with destructive social and economic impacts on Guinea-Bissau, especially on informal workers and micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs). 

With this study, UNDP provides a comprehensive and detailed overview of the state of formal enterprises in Guinea-Bissau, before and during the crisis. It also identifies long-standing or structural impediments faced by the country’s registered firms. The report assesses and provides recommendations on reframing some of the key aspects of ongoing interventions while confirming the need for deepening other areas of engagement.
