Country Report Côte d'Ivoire 1st Quarter

  • ID: 2417896
  • Country Profile
  • March 2021
  • Region: Global
  • The Economist Intelligence Unit
Côte d'Ivoire's economy is led chiefly by private consumption, but growth will remain weak, owing to limited income growth. Increases in headline real GDP will come from faster growth in fixed investment (following reforms to attract investors) and exports.

Outbreaks of unrest followed the October 2020 presidential election, but the president, Alassane Ouattara, is engaging with rival politicians to avoid further violence, and opposition parties are not boycotting the March legislative election.

Policy will focus on stimulating recovery via a new 2021-25 National Development Plan. Market reforms, infrastructure investment and political stability will boost growth.
