Kerfalla Yansané has been the current Ambassador of the Republic of Guinea in the United States since 2018.

A lawyer by training, he got his first position in the faculty of law at Dakar and then in 1985 he was named Governor of the Central Bank of the Republic of Guinea. He initiated various reforms in this organisation. He was dismissed in 1996 after the military uprising. In 2010 he was reappointed by the transitional government directed by Prime Minister Jean Marie Doré and in December he was retained in his post by the new, democratically elected President, Alpha Condé.

He was appointed ambassador on November 24, 2017. Two months later, Ambassador Yansané presented his credentials to President Donald Trump at the White House on January 24, 2018.[1]
