However, this may soon be about to change as thecomplementary logics of operators following the global trend of building on-site refineries, and the Guinean government desire to benefit in terms of investment, employment, taxes and infrastructure, mean that both share a common goal: the establishment of alumina refineries on Guinean soil.
