image of Multi-dimensional Review of Côte d'Ivoire

The Multi-dimensional Review of Côte d'Ivoire aims to support the crafting of a development strategy for Côte d'Ivoire to reach emergence, the status of emergent economy, in 2020. The report recommends that Ivorian authorities focus on diversifying Côte d'Ivoire’s economy towards a more industrialised and modern structure, while supporting the economy’s competitiveness. To achieve this goal, Côte d'Ivoire needs to improve and develop its infrastructure network in the entire territory, encourage private sector investment in particular in SMEs, and improve education levels. A tax system that generates less distortion and more revenue to finance the growing needs of the country will also be required. This report details recommendations for each thematic area aimed at removing obstacles to emergence.

The successful implementation of these reforms will require a more efficient public administration to promote the priority projects, stimulate more changes and ensure the operationalisation of actions. This report also provides a dashboard that tracks progress and provides the basis for the evaluation of changes leading to emergence in 2020.

Continuing structural transformation of the economy

OECD Development Centre

To achieve the status of an emerging nation, Côte d’Ivoire will need to move towards an economic structure that generates growth and jobs for people in all parts of the country, doing so by diversifying economic activity and relying on existing comparative advantages, as, for example, in agricultural processing. A vigorous and more professional services sector will support growth in other sectors while directly boosting the expansion of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Being competitive requires an encouraging investment climate, well-accepted quality standards and robust competition. Trade must be encouraged, especially through regional integration, to conquer foreign markets. Land and property laws that make best use of economic potential can also help development.
