Africa Country Insight: Côte d’Ivoire

Africa Country Insight Côte dIvoire - iPadWhat you will learn about:

  • Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire’s economic capital, is the largest consumer market when compared with cities in neighbouring West African countries.
  • The Covid-19 pandemic slashed Côte d’Ivoire’s travel and tourism industry last year, with our estimations suggesting that activity in the sector will only return to pre-pandemic levels around 2024.
  • There is a strong need for Côte d’Ivoire to diversify its economy in order to make economic growth, exports and fiscal revenue less dependent on cocoa production and prices.
