Central Bank of the Republic of Guinea
The bank was established on 1 March 1960. Ousmane Baldé was president of the bank in the 1960s before his execution in 1971. In 1972 President Touré took over governorship of the Bank, formally attaching it to the Presidency.
The Bank is active in promoting financial inclusion policy and is a leading member of the Alliance for Financial Inclusion. It is also one of the original 17 regulatory institutions to make specific national commitments to financial inclusion under the Maya Declaration during the 2011 Global Policy Forum held in Mexico.
