Côte d'Ivoire Economic Outlook

Economic activity in 2016 was driven mainly by structural public investment and the dynamism of the private sector. This trend continued in 2017, with real GDP growth estimated at 8%, despite domestic and external shocks at the beginning of the year. The 35% drop in the price of cocoa, the main source of export earnings, between November 2016 and January 2017 led to an estimated CFAF 200 billion loss for local producers. Growth was helped by the upswing in the primary sector, the good performance of the energy sector, and higher domestic consumption. Due to the dynamism of the secondary and tertiary sectors, growth is projected to reach 7.9% in 2018 and 7.8% in 2019.
