Country Economic Forecasts - Cote D Ivoire
Economic activity remains buoyant as the Côte d’Ivoire continues to pursue its ambitious development plan. We expect growth to reach 7.4% this year. Strong public investment and rising private investments (especially into the robust industrial sector) and an improved business climate are the main drivers of growth. After the Ivorian economy showed resilience and was able to expand strongly in 2017 despite many shocks, the authorities are optimistic about the growth outlook. We forecast growth to average 6.3% p.a. over the 2019-25 period.
