Transport

Cote D Ivoire Transport

After missing out on needed maintenance and expansion work over the past decade, Côte d’Ivoire’s transport infrastructure is receiving some overdue attention. Expansion of transport networks across the country has become imperative, with a headline growth rate of 8.4% in 2016, and increasing urbanisation putting pressure on existing networks. Increased congestion, from both higher domestic and international trading, is putting added strain on roads, ports and railroad systems. However, recent reforms have bolstered the transport sector’s physical infrastructure, including the growing use of the public-private partnerships as a means to attract private financing and management into strategic infrastructure such as ports, airports and land transport routes. This chapter contains interviews with Ibrahima Koné, Director-General, Quipux Afrique; and Abdoulaye Coulibaly, Chairman, Aeria & Air Côte d’Ivoire.
