Ivory Coast, popularly known as Côte d’Ivoire, is a West African republic with beach resorts, rainforests and a French-colonial legacy. It shares its land borders with Liberia, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso and Ghana. On the south is the Gulf of Guinea (Atlantic Ocean). Ivory Coast’s capital is Yamoussoukro. The port city of Abidjan is the largest city and also its administrative & economic capital. Ivory Coast has a population of approx. 20.6 million and is spread over an area of 322,462 sq. km. The country has French as its major language however many other indigenous languages are widely spoken.
Ivory Coast has enjoyed peace and stability for the last many years and this has allowed its economy to flourish, with noticeable growth in Oil Exploration & Extraction, Logistics and the Banking sectors. The country is today the largest economy in the West African Economic and Monetary Union constituting 40% of the Monetary Union’s total GDP. Ivory Coast has also emerged as the world’s largest exporter of cocoa beans and the fourth-largest exporter of goods, in general, in Sub-Saharan Africa (after South Africa, Nigeria and Angola).
The contemporary Ivorian economy is largely market-based and Agriculture plays a dominant role. Almost 70% of the Ivorian population is engaged in some form of Agriculture based profession. Manufacturing is mainly limited to the refining and processing of agricultural produce (e.g. palm oil, coconut-oil, sugar, etc.) or the canning of fruits such as pineapples. Oil and Natural Gas production are also a growing sector of the economy.
