Guinea Bissau is one of the poorest countries in the world. The export of cashew nuts, which account for over 90 percent of total exports, is the backbone of the country’s economy. The major obstacle to the country’s growth is the unstable social environment caused by successive military coups and the traffic of narcotics. After the death of the president in January of 2012, the military seized power and suspended democracy. As a result, the Economic Community of Central Africa threatened sanctions that can hamper the country’s future.
