Guinean Mines Minister Mohamed Lamine Fofana was quoted as saying at a signing ceremony in Abu Dhabi that the deal would add 500 million to Guinea‚„s gross domestic product.

The agreement with Mubadala will make a significant contribution to Guineas economy by enabling the expansion of CBG to more than 20 million metric tons of bauxite per year,‚ Fofana said on Friday.

Guineas government said in a separate press release that Mubadala had said it needs 5 billion tons of bauxite by 2017.
