The West African nation of Guinea sits atop of some of the world’s largest bauxite and iron ore reserves.
Danish national Bernt Meldgaard Christensen, who has just taken the helm of Guinea Shipping Corp (GSC), wants the company to play a major role in the country’s mining exports.
GSC was formed in 2010 by Henrik Christensen. He died in April this year, and his brother Bernt, who has taken over as executive chairman, promises to reinvigorate the company.
“Henrik had a vision to build a shipping line for Guinea that also provides a platform to help develop the country’s own maritime industry,” Christensen said.
