From The Report: Cote d'Ivoire 2022
View in Online Reader

Thanks in large part to renewed political stability, Côte d’Ivoire’s sustained high growth in the last decade ranks it among the best-performing countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The post-2012 period has been marked by ambitious public and private investment programmes, giving the economy substantial resilience. Reflecting global trends, growth was adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic; however, the country proved to be one of the most resilient in the region. In 2021 the World Bank and the IMF praised Côte d’Ivoire’s economic performance and pandemic resilience. The institutions noted remarkable pre-pandemic growth and a 7% rebound in GDP in 2021. Recovery efforts are expected to be sustained in 2022, with GDP growth forecast at 6%.
