The 2016-2020 National Economic and Social Development Plan (PNDES)
The 2016-2020 National Economic and Social Development Plan (PNDES) represents the second generation of planning under the Third Republic, after the 2011-2015 Five-Year Plan (Plan Quinquennal, PQ). It reflects the political will of the Prime Minister’s General Policy Statement 1 to make the PNDES the single frame of reference for all development interventions. The PNDES is also intended to further the Vision 2040 of an emerging, prosperous Guinea over the 2016-2020 period.
