(Bloomberg)--Guinea is ready to begin talks with United Co. Rusal about 5 million euros ($6.8 million) of taxes the government alleges the company hasn’t paid, Minister of Economic and Financial Control Aboubacar Koulibaly said.
Rusal is likely to discuss the situation on Monday, Feb. 21, with an administrative committee, Koulibaly told reporters today in Conakry, Guinea’s capital city.
Guinea is the world’s biggest bauxite exporter. Rusal is the world’s largest aluminum maker.
“Rusal is concerned because the taxes that it should pay were not paid,” Koulibaly said today without giving more information.
