(Ecofin Agency) - Côte d’Ivoire’s economy should rise from 7.4% in 2018 to 7.5%, finance minister Adama Koné (photo) indicated on May 17, 2019.
During a conference on "Croissance économique et bien-être social" (economic growth and social welfare), the official explained that the said forecast was in line with those published with international backers such as the World Bank Group and the IMF.
He also reminded that since the end of the 2plitico-military crisis in 2011, the country’s average yearly growth has been 8.6%. This growth makes the country one of the economic drivers within the WAEMU and one of the most attractive economies in the world.
M. Koné added that these good performances were backed by controlled inflation (0.4%) and a debt level well below the WAEMU’s standard set at 70% of GDP.
