With a population of nearly 22 million inhabitants, a gross national income of over 1,700 USD per person, unique infrastructures in West Africa, and an increasingly diversified economy, Côte d’Ivoire is the number one economy in the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU), representing 40% of its GDP. Côte d’Ivoire is also the second economic power of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and is the gateway to this large market of 300 million people.

Fully focused on economic development, Côte d’Ivoire’s objective is to join the ranks of emerging countries by 2020. Within this framework, the National Development Plan (NDP 2012 – 2015) devotes nearly 22 billion USD to investment, of which 60% come from the private sector. The new National Development Plan (NDP 2015 – 2020) is being adopted.

This strategy has already proved effective as there are signs of economic growth : + 9.8% in 2013, with a forecasted 10 – 9,10% in 2014 and in the years to come.

WHAT'S ABOUT THE FORUM - Côte d'Ivoire Days /

In his ambition of making Cote d’ lvoire an emerging country by 2020, the President of the Republic Hon Alassane Ouattara wants to increase FDI, particularly from countries with high investment potential but which have not yet reached a substantial level of investment in Cote d’lvoire.

The United Arab Emirates invested about  $11 million in Côte d’Ivoire in 2014 out of a potential exceeding $8.2  billion.

Ignorance of existing projects is the main reason for such insufficient investment.

As a result, « Côte d’Ivoire Days »  Forum is part of this dynamics. Indeed, meeting with UAE investors, showing them all investment opportunities sector by  sector for a real win-win business partnership is the way to go.

Two years ago, Côte d’Ivoire entered into a new era. Our country got back to work. We have made considerable progress in terms of governance, of modernizing administrations and institutional normalization.

We designed the National Development Plan (NDP 2012-2015), the implementation of which enabled us to generate strong, sustainable growth and create wealth and jobs, particularly for young people.This plan aims to reduce the poverty rate by 50% by 2015; it provides for major sectional reforms in addition to a strong increase in the investment rate in our country, particularly in the areas of infrastructure, education, health, agriculture…

Today, we have a growth rate of 9.8%, with the goal of achieving double-digit growth by 2014-2015. However, we have greater ambitions for our country. We want Côte d’Ivoire to become an emerging country.We want to become the hub of the sub-region, the gateway to West Africa, a market of over 300 million inhabitants. This ambition will be achieved through strong and long time relationships with the economic operators capable of seizing the opportunities created by growth.

Armed with our potential, our expertise, our cultural diversity and our faith in liberalism, Côte d’Ivoire is opening up to the world. The Côte d’Ivoire Days 2016 is part of this dynamic : work together to create more opportunities.

If you are a business man or an institutional and economic operator, this forum is for you. We look forward to welcoming you at this important economic event.

President of the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire.
