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.

Public governance and ways to implement it

OECD Development Centre

This chapter describes cross-sector constraints affecting the proposed reforms and pre-conditions for carrying them out and speeding up progress towards the status of an emerging nation. It suggests creating a top-level unit to implement reforms and steer change and lists the major features of support needed for them: communication, co-ordination and follow-up. The condition of emerging nation must be the fruit of an agreement between the most senior politicians and be conveyed to all Ivorians, including the private sector. The government must ensure good co-operation between public bodies, since most of the reforms will need the involvement of many participants. Any economic transformation depends on robust monitoring and assessment of the reforms, so a table of indicators adapted to the country’s emergence is presented.
