Business environment in Côte d'Ivoire

As the third-largest economy in West Africa,  Côte d’Ivoire maintains good macro-economic indicators, renewed investment in infrastructure and low, but improving, trade competitiveness. Known for its chocolate, Côte d’Ivoire’s economy is heavily dependent on agriculture. However, the country’s economic structure is increasingly diversifying, with high potential in mining, agriculture processing and hydrocarbon production. Foreign investor sentiment about the country is positive, however, the business environment and socio-political tensions remain a concern.
