Côte d’Ivoire

Côte d'Ivoire Economic Outlook

  • The economic recovery that began in 2012 was confirmed in 2014 by an estimated 8.3% growth rate and growth is expected to remain robust in 2015 and 2016.
  • One of the biggest challenges to making this growth inclusive is to strengthen the role of local authorities in launching projects that have a structuring impact and speed up public access to modern services that will enable more productivity and efficiency.
  • Better mobilisation of internal and external funding of development and social and political stability is needed for Côte d’Ivoire to achieve its goal of becoming an emerging nation by 2020.
