18 June 2015

The capital of Guinea-Bissau will soon have a five-star hotel, following approval of the project’s environmental impact study, the Secretary of State for the Environment announced Wednesday in Bissau.

In a statement obtained by Macauhub in Bissau, the hotel, which will be named Amilcar Lopes Cabral after the late leader of the African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cabo Verde (Cape Verde), will have seven floors, 132 rooms and 12 suites, a conference hall and a swimming pool, and will be located in the centre of the capital.

Guinean businessman and vice-president of the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Agriculture and Services (CCIAS), Abel Incada, is the owner of the future hotel, whose construction was awarded to construction company, Belinca, also owned by Incada.

The project, whose construction was approved by an ad-hoc commission involving various ministries, only required approval of the environmental impact assessment by the Ministry of the Environment. (macauhub/GW)
