In education, Chairman Li said that the Tiens Group would form a strategic partnership with the Guinean Ministry of Education providing them with educational resources, and beginning a series of educational projects in cooperation with local universities. In terms of higher education, the Tiens Group will also send high-quality teachers to Guinea. Outstanding Guinean students will also gain the chance to visit China as exchange students at Tianyuan University.

In healthcare, Tiens Group will adopt various measures to help Guinea increase its medical capabilities, for example by arranging the visit of world-class experts to Guinea to perform cataract surgery, and by planning a nutritional educational program to benefit children and the next Guinean generation. 

At present, most high-quality health check services in Guinea originate in Europe. Tiens Group will introduce its Taijisheng high-end healthcare and medical systems to the Guinean market. This equipment will allow Guinea to provide comprehensive, high quality, health check services. 

Chinese-style therapy will also be made available, so that people can experience the profound benefits of the Chinese medical tradition. Tiens Group will also provide medical resources to help support healthcare and medical programs.

Following the official visit, Chairman Li re-emphasized the importance of the African market. This year, he said, the Tiens Group would focus on French-speaking Africa and Guinea, as a major French-speaking African nation, is an important part of this strategy.

For that reason, Guinea is a priority market in the Tiens Group 2018 development strategy which will see the group begin by exploring the healthcare, tourism and education areas of the Guinean market, and by cooperating closely with the Guinean Government.

Speaking about the Tiens Group business development plan for Africa, Mr. Fei Wang, the Deputy General Manager of the Tiens Global Direct Sales Department, also stated that the company would focus on French-speaking markets this year.

Business and market development will focus on nations including Benin, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire and Guinea, and on developing areas such as tourism, education, and healthcare. In this way, Tiens can both benefit the Guinean people and enable the successful development of the Tiens Group in Guinea.
