The government has temporarily suspended the management contract for Electricidade e Aguas da Guiné-Bissau (EAGB) held by a Portuguese consortium after the management team pulled out of Bissau because of coronavirus.The suspension took effect from 1 June. The World Bank, which awarded the three-year contract in November 2018 following an international tender, said the government had appointed an interim management board which would ensure continuity of service until the consortium could return to Bissau.
