Côte d'Ivoire Agriculture

With a wide variety of crops and a high number of cultivation regions, agriculture has long been a valuable economic sector. Fertile land, sought-after cash crops and a favourable climate have all contributed to the industry becoming a crucial source of revenue. Besides being the number-one cocoa producer in the world for many years, Côte d’Ivoire has become one of the largest cashew nut exporters as well. The government is also seeking to raise the amount of domestic processing and in-country value addition by implementing new measures to advance the sector and provide it with a competitive advantage when difficult global market conditions arise.

This chapter contains an interview with Pierre Billon, Managing Director, SIFCA Group.
