Guinea-Bissau joined the Integrated Framework (IF) in October 2007. Guinea-Bissau’s Diagnostic Trade Integration Study (DTIS) was finalized and validated in October 2009, and the DTIS Action Matrix recommendations were politically endorsed by the Government in January 2010. The DTIS focuses on the development of the various sectors, including cashew nuts, rice, fisheries, tourism and mining.
The Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP), namely the DENARP 2 (2010-2013) has a component on trade mainstreaming incorporating the DTIS Action Matrix priorities. The DENARP also takes into account the cross-cutting issues, such as infrastructure development, telecommunications, legal and regulatory framework, energy, private sector development, customs reforms, trade facilitation and trade policy.
